Birch Farm is a three-bedroom detached farmhouse fronting an imposing plot and is situated in a rural setting. There are various outbuildings within the site that offer potential for re-development either to the farmhouse itself or for a possible new build opportunity (subject to the usual planning consents).
Alternatively, there is the potential to simply modernise the existing farmhouse into a beautiful family home.
The main farmhouse is a two-storey detached building with a pitched tiled roof and brick elevations. Approached via an electric gated entrance the farmhouse has its main entrance to the side elevation which leads into the reception hall via a traditional oak front door. The hall features a fireplace and WC. To the right of the reception hall is a living room, and stairs in the reception hall lead to the upstairs accommodation. To the left is a traditional farm style kitchen with a range of wall and base units, a useful pantry room and utility. There is a door from the utility room leading to the various outbuildings at the rear.
The upstairs accommodation comprises of master bedroom with double en-suite and dressing room, bedroom two with en-suite and bedroom three. Beyond the master bedroom is loft space which runs the entire rear remaining length of the house.
There is a courtyard to the rear of the house surround by brick-built outbuildings. Behind this is a lean to which is dilapidated but has potential to be re-erected.
Beyond the farmhouse are extensive grounds with panoramic rural views of the local greenbelt.
The front entrance includes an electronic gate and driveway giving access to the rear outbuildings and polytunnel towards the rear of the garden.
The plot size is in all approximately 0.8353 acres. Please note: The boundary line to the side of the drive includes the trees.
The re-development opportunity offers the potential to turn this traditional farmhouse into a beautifully modern, contemporary home. The proposed designs suggest moving the stairs, creating a new reception hall with storage and WC, a cosy snug with log burner as well as a main living room with large windows, filling the room with natural light.
The main living room leads through double doors into the kitchen/diner, the heart of the home. The design of the kitchen/diner is sleek and modern, flooded with natural light from skylights and stunning bi-folding doors on one side and sliding glass doors on the other, allowing the whole space to be opened up, enjoying views of the greenbelt beyond. The sliding glass doors lead out to a quaint courtyard, a secluded place to relax or entertain guests.
The kitchen has an L shape design featuring a large island in the centre. Beyond the kitchen is a generous utility room and an office, also featuring sliding glass doors to the courtyard, offering peace and quiet when working from home.
The upstairs accommodation comprises of three double bedrooms. The generous master room with en-suite, bedroom two with dressing room and en-suite and bedroom three with en-suite.
