4 Bedroom Detached House For Sale
Hope Farmhouse is a detached former farmhouse dating back to 1830, but it is believed to be much older as a farm worker's cottage. Built of stone, the property has been the subject of recent modernisation and has been extended by the current owners to provide an excellent dining space from the kitchen. There is also an annex which was created from a barn.
The accommodation is well proportioned and naturally light throughout. In brief, Hope Farm House offers an entrance hall with stairs leading to the first floor and a door on the right leading into the home office/snug. There is a large sitting room with an attractive wood-burning stove and dual aspect windows. The kitchen/dining room is at the back of the house opening onto the gardens. There are a range of wall and base units with room for appliances and the dining area is full of natural light with almost floor to ceiling glass and doors opening into the gardens. There is also a rear porch leading to the outbuilding and courtyard gardens.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms, an impressive en-suite to the master and a family bathroom.
The annex is what was formerly a barn and offers excellent, flexible and self-contained accommodation across two floors. This space would be a perfect annex but equally could make a great space to work from home. On the ground floor is a large reception room with a log burner, kitchenette and a shower room whilst an impressive double bedroom lies on the first floor with fabulous far reaching countryside views and exposed beams.
The property is approached via a five-bar wooden gate and a gravelled driveway. There is a double garage which could be incorporated into creating a larger annex, if required, with part roof storage above. To the rear and side there are further garden areas that are laid to grass and are child and pet friendly. To the southwest rear side there is a lovely courtyard. There is also a detached laundry room with an attached store.

Cooper and Tanner wish to inform prospective buyers that there are a number of planning applications for housing in the nearby countryside. We would advise any prospective buyer to familiar themselves with the applications and the position of these. We would also like to mention that our vendors have had some local roofing companies visit the house and our understanding is that the house would benefit from a new roof over the coming five years or so. These two points have both been factored into our appraisal for the home.
Tenure: Please confirm with Cooper and Tanner whether this property is freehold or leasehold
