Believed to date from the mid-17th Century, with later additions, Shepherd’s Farm is a beautifully presented family home that has been sympathetically modernised to blend the charm and character of the original period property with the benefits of modern amenities. Features of note include exposed timbers and beams, vintage style radiators, Lincrusta wallpaper in the entrance hall and period fireplaces.
At the heart of the home is the dual aspect kitchen with bespoke John Lewis of Hungerford fitted units and tiled worktops, Aga, attractive Karndean flooring, stable door to the outside and steps down to the utility/scullery with clay tiled floor. Adjacent to the kitchen is the triple aspect garden room with Karndean flooring, stable door giving access to the outside, and internal door to the pool changing room with sauna shower and access to the pool. The dual aspect drawing room boasts a window seat to the bay window, whilst the sitting room has clay tiled flooring, built-in cupboards, part wood panelled walls and a working fireplace. The impressive dual aspect dining room is fully wood panelled and features a stone fireplace. There are also two studies - one with part wood panelled walls and the other, adjacent to the kitchen, which could be utilised as a breakfast room.
From the welcoming entrance hall, a turned staircase leads to the first floor comprising master bedroom with built-in bedroom furniture, step down to the luxurious en suite bathroom with jacuzzi bath and further step down to the dressing room, with French oak floor. Three further bedrooms and a family bathroom with corner bath and separate shower complete the accommodation.
The property is approached via a private drive to an electric 5-bar wooden gate, leading to the gravel drive and 2 bay open car barn. A low height brick wall encloses the front garden with a path leading to the original front door and porch.
The main garden area is enclosed by mature hedging and is laid to lawn, with an attractive sunken garden, ornamental pond, and a restored Victorian summer house and children play house. Adjacent to the rear of the property is an enclosed paved terrace, perfect for outside entertaining, and the enclosed heated swimming pool and hot tub with paved surround. The paddock area is bounded by post/rail and wire fencing and is currently home to ducks and chickens in an enclosed run. The spacious agricultural barn has wooden bi-folding doors, power and water, and houses the pump, filter and electric heating for the pool; ideal for housing classic cars, machinery or possible conversion (stpp and consents). A 5-bar gate from the gravel drive provides additional access to the paddock.
