Thrubwell Cottage Farm offers a unique opportunity to purchase a detached property with a large garden in a quiet semi-rural position.
Upon arrival at the property a long gravelled driveway leads from the lane to the main house and the extensive rear yard/parking area.
There are two entrances to the property a ‘traditional’ front door and a more conventional rear door which leads in from the parking area to the boot room with access to the utility/shower room and separate cloakroom. Beyond the boot room is the kitchen/breakfast room.
The kitchen is fitted with a range of matching bespoke wall and floor units and also houses the oil fired AGA, the AGA provides domestic hot water as well as cooking facilities.
Next to the kitchen is the generously well-proportioned sitting room, the room is a practical and useable shape with double doors opening to the front garden, there is also a wood burning stove. Also on the ground floor is a separate formal dining room and the family room, again with a wood burning stove.
A flight of stairs rise from the ground floor to the first floor landing. On the first floor there are four double bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and a five piece en-suite finished in classic white, there are also fitted cupboards in two of the other bedrooms, the family bathroom is fitted with a three piece, coloured suite.
The proposed plans for the barn involve converting the existing layout to create a two storey, four bedroom detached home with its own garden area and allocated parking.
Once converted the barn could possibly suit those looking for an annexe or additional family dwelling, this is a truly unique and rare opportunity.
Grounds and Gardens
Thrubwell Cottage Farm is a registered small holding, set within extensive grounds and gardens in excess of 3 acres. The main sections of land are arranged as two paddocks either side of the main house, both with separate access points. At the front of the house there is a formal garden, laid mainly to lawn with established shrubs and trees. To the rear there is an extensive
yard/parking area, a garage and a range of outbuildings, as well as
the previously mentioned barn.
The property will certainly be of interest to purchasers who require extensive outbuildings and parking. It may even be possible, subject to planning permission, to run a business from the grounds.
Due to the properties location the garden area and paddocks offer
an exceptional level of privacy
