Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 4
Bolton Farm is a unique and highly desirable 3/4 bedroom property full of rustic character yet also a fabulous modern home with an indoor swimming pool. It is a home that offers everything. Standing on approximately 2 acres, the original barn on the plot has been transformed into a luxury, stone-built home offering substantial accommodation, and living space that makes the most of the lovely surrounding landscape and far-reaching views.

Beautifully presented with great kerb appeal, the property is set back off the road behind an attractive stone wall and approached through electric gates onto a block paved drive. There is plenty of off-road parking, turnaround space, and double detached garage. In addition to the extremely well maintained outdoor space, the property comes with stables, outhouses and an excellent fenced paddock.

The cleverly designed layout inside ensures the principal reception rooms are focused on the private, south-facing garden. Leading off the entrance hall, the breakfasting kitchen with its walk-in larder offers a wonderful welcome with beams, exposed brickwork, a tiled floor, and fitted oak units. Beyond here is a good size utility room and a unique, circular office, playroom, or music room with French doors. Next comes the equally superb, curved dining room, which is filled with natural light from its four windows. The exceptional, triple aspect lounge offers access to the garden on two sides. The swimming pool is the piece de resistance with a surrounding relaxation area and French doors leading out to a second terrace. A further ground floor room is currently used as a family room and could work equally well as a fourth bedroom.

A grand staircase leads to a spacious galleried landing with double height ceiling and the three double bedrooms all with attractive en-suites and nice outlook from several windows which flow with ample natural light. Early viewing comes highly advised to avoid missing out on this wonderful and rare opportunity
