Houstern Farmhouse is a unique Grade II listed property, set within its own glorious grounds and beautiful gardens, measuring approximately 0.554 of an acre. The main house itself is quite simply stunning and steeped in history and has been lovingly and superbly renovated over the past few years, creating a most fabulous country home for any family to enjoy.

The main house is light, spacious and offers many fine period features from window seats and beamed ceilings to inglenook fireplaces with bread ovens and beautifully polished parquet flooring. There are four fabulous reception areas, starting with a fine sitting room, where a substantial fireplace harbours a log burning stove along with shuttered windows and plenty of the afore-mentioned fine character features. A most charming dining room offers the same quality of ambience with impressive inglenook fireplace as its main focal point, both being beautifully presented. There is a study offering the same splendid period features with oak flooring and a simply outstanding garden room with vaulted ceiling just oozing character.

The delightful, quintessential farmhouse kitchen, measuring over 21ft in length, makes this a fantastic hub of the house with, once again, a wonderfully creative vaulted ceiling. Slate work surfaces and an abundance of base and eye level units offer great storage. There’s an oil-fired Heritage Range and plenty of space along with plumbing for all appliances required. A good size utility room provides more space and storage. There is also a downstairs cloakroom. Two separate staircases placed at either ends of the house, give access to the first floor where there are three good size bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate shower room.

Set in the grounds of this gorgeous property is a superb detached barn which has been renovated to an exceptionally high standard. This separate annex provides a bright and spacious living room measuring over 20ft in length with exposed ceiling framework and beams. The focal point of a wood-burning stove creates a cosy atmosphere. Doors provide access out onto a balcony with steps down into the garden. The barn also has a large open plan kitchen, two bedrooms, a lovely en-suite plus added space for a third bedroom or second bathroom. Anyone looking for income possibilities can really make this an ideal business, whether it be as a residential let, holiday let or annex for anyone looking for further accommodation for a family member. Beneath the annex is a large workshop measuring over 26ft with both light and power. There is also a large garage.

The surrounding grounds are a gardener’s dream with sweeping lawn areas, well-stocked borders with mature trees, shrubs and plants, fruit trees, vegetable garden, terraces, a pond, greenhouse plus an orchard.

What a house! For anyone looking for a ‘Darling Buds of May’ lifestyle, then this enchanting home is for you.
