East Wingates Farmhouse is a detached stone-built property offering well laid out and practical living space, and is supremely positioned to take full advantage of the far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside.
The property comes with about 109 acres of land, principally laid to pasture that has been managed under an organic scheme, and numerous outbuildings, both modern and traditional, including a two-storey annexe with planning permission for conversion to a two-bedroom dwelling. The property presents an opportunity to acquire a superb family home with the flexibility for a variety of uses of the land and buildings, including sporting opportunities.
The accommodation successfully combines period features with modern-day luxuries and includes a generously proportioned drawing room featuring an inglenook style fireplace with an inset log burning stove, creating a warm and inviting room in which to relax and unwind. There is an adjoining dining room, with a fireplace and inset log burning stove, and a conservatory with doors opening out to a sun terrace and front garden – a perfect vantage point for the far-reaching views.
The light and spacious kitchen is fitted with a good range of units and space for a range style cooker, and provides ample space for a breakfast table and chairs for more informal dining. Located off the kitchen is a utility room and cloakroom. The ground floor further includes a good-sized office and a store room with direct access to the rear yard.
On the first floor, four bedrooms and a family bathroom are arranged around, and may be accessed from, the landing, whilst on the second floor, there is a fifth bedroom/hobby room, with the benefit of under-eaves storage space. The farmhouse benefits from its own garden comprising a lawned area, a paved sun terrace, a further paved seating area and flower/shrub beds.
There is a plentiful mixture of traditional and modern outbuildings, well suited to stock rearing and modern farming requirements but equally providing good usable storage space or for a wide variety of possible commercial or amenity uses.
Part of the buildings benefit from a consent for conversion to a 4-bedroom single storey dwelling (under Application No. 15/03183/FUL)
The land extends to about 109 acres and principally comprises traditional grazing ground with well-maintained fencing. There are four inbye grass paddocks close to the house, one containing a flighting pond which has been managed as a part of the informal shoot on the holding. There is a second pond or small lake, central within the boundary, within a plantation.
