DESCRIPTION A truly outstanding renovation of an attractive double fronted Grade II listed farmhouse between Rode and Bradford On Avon. A gated driveway leads to ample parking and 5 acres of landscapes gardens and paddock.
ACCOMMODATION If you appreciate a rich display of period features whilst enjoying those modern luxuries in a home, this could be the place for you. Throughout the house are sash windows, exposed wooden floorboards, beams and open fireplaces. The majority of these features are found to the front of the house in the original part of the building and beyond an incredible choice of open planned living spaces can be found. Extremely flexible in its layout, we believe that this house could suit somebody looking for multi generation living or perhaps somebody wanting a family home in addition to a self-contained unit to earn an income from.
To the front of the house are two dual aspect reception rooms, one featuring a wood-burning stove and the other an open fireplace. Beyond is a games room and a home office. The kitchen is beautifully finished and includes a quarry tiled floor and exposed Apex beams with full height ceilings. The wall and base units are of very good quality and are contemporary in design. There is an electric Aga with temperature control taking centre stage, a door out to the gardens and access into the formal dining room. The formal dining room is very well proportioned and perfectly positioned within the house to entertain guests and host dinner parties. From the kitchen a door opens into one of the extensions. A truly magnificent open planned living space that is full of natural light and enjoys full height ceilings and exposed Apex beams. A contemporary wood-burning stove against a beautiful exposed stone wall provides the perfect contrast of old and new. On one side of this room is a well-appointed utility room and downstairs shower room and on the other there is a double bedroom with a dressing room and shower room. Finally, on the ground floor is the most recent extension, again, completed to the most incredible specification with no expense spared and a particular attention to detail. With polished concrete floors, exposed stone walls and high ceilings. This area is largely set out as a living/kitchen/dining area with the far end being used as a large double bedroom with en-suite wet room and dressing room. There is underfloor heating in the kitchen, dining room and barn and new radiators in the oldest part of the house.
On the first floor of the house are two decent size double bedrooms and a stunning bathroom that includes a roll top bath, exposed stone wall, 'Neptune' double sink and a window overlooking open countryside.
Above, the attic has been converted into an excellent space with dual aspect windows. This would make a great child's bedroom or playroom.
OUTSIDE Flexham Farm is approached via electric gates that open into a sweeping driveway leading around to the back of the house. There is parking for several vehicles. The gardens have been partly landscaped and provide a large seating area adjoining the side of the house which is perfect for hosting summer parties and entertaining. There is a large level lawn to the rear, ideal for children to play safely and there are paddocks beyond that measure approximately 4.5 acres. We believe this is an opportunity that could suit anybody wishing to keep a horse or a smallholding.
LOCATION Flexham Farm is conveniently located on the outskirts of the Somerset village of Rode, which enjoys an active community and a variety of local amenities including a choice of public houses, post office and store, well-regarded primary school, village hall and church. Rode also benefits from regular bus services to Bath, Frome, Bradford on Avon and Trowbridge. The nearby village of Beckington has a primary school, a private prep school and the well regarded Mes Amis deli/caf鬠together with a 24 hour petrol station and shop.
The property is also conveniently accessible to the A36 providing easy driving into Bath, which lies within approximately 11 miles and provides a full range of amenities to include an excellent selection of restaurants and cultural attractions including the Theatre Royal. In addition, there are high speed rail links to London Paddington from both Westbury Station and Bath Spa Station. Bradford on Avon Station (approx. 8 minutes) connects direct to London Waterloo.
SERVICES Mains electric is connected to the house. The central heating runs on LPG gas. The drainage and water are both private systems that have been installed in recent years. A bore hole provides the water.
