Stonerocks Farm is a splendid Grade II Listed timber-framed house, with much history, that has been extensively and fundamentally overhauled and refurbished in recent years to a very high standard and is presented in excellent order throughout.
An ancient oak front door opens into a reception hall with doors leading to the principal reception rooms. The drawing room is triple aspect with a large fireplace and stone surround, and a heavily timbered ceiling with two dragon beams. Adjacent is the dining room, which has an inglenook fireplace and many exposed timbers. The study has shelving fitted into a former fireplace.
To one side of the property is the kitchen/breakfast room, which is fitted in a bespoke contemporary style with black American walnut work surfaces and stainless steel. The equipment is of the highest quality and includes an American-style fridge, a Belling electric/gas range cooker. This dramatic room has electronically operated roof lights in the vaulted ceiling, oak beams, a stone floor and a large wall of glass which opens on to a terrace and barbeque area. Beyond the kitchen are the utility and shower rooms.
From the hallway, stairs with an oak bannister rise to the first floor landing, from where doors lead to the first floor bedroom accommodation and a further flight of stairs rises to the second floor.
The master bedroom is located at the back of the house and is a spacious room with exposed wall and ceiling timbers with a sealed brick fireplace with a moulded surround. The room has built-in wardrobes and a free-standing antique copper bath to one corner. The second bedroom also has exposed ceiling timbers and a sealed fireplace. This pretty room is double aspect looking to the back and side of the house. There is a beautifully fitted family bathroom which is arranged to provide a wet room style shower; a television is set into the wall.
Two further good sized bedrooms are found on the second floor, both of which are charming rooms and open to the eaves with views over the garden to the front of the house.
From the kitchen a single storey glazed walkway leads to the stunning indoor swimming pool and games room above.
Annexe and garage
A detached building provides extensive garaging and workshop space with a WC, accessed by two up-and-over doors.
Adjoining this is a self contained annex, which comprises a sitting/dining area with a kitchen fitted to one side having a work surface to one wall with a stainless steel sink, wall and floor units and space for a fridge or cooker. A door leads through to a bedroom with en-suite shower room.
Stonerocks Farm is approached via a pair of electronically operated wooden gates to a gravel driveway leading to a parking and turning area at the front of the house and to the garage.
A central feature of the garden is the pond, which has been carefully landscaped and partially surrounded by a terrace with a waterfall feature and well. The terrace has a built-in barbeque with space for a fridge and an in-set sink (plumbed for gas and electricity). There is a summer house fitted with a hot-tub and shower.
The gardens contain a great variety of matured fruit and specimen trees and provide an ideal setting for the property.
