Entrance hall, sitting room, family room, dining room, study/bedroom 5, kitchen/breakfast room, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (1 en suite), utility room, cloakroom, large barn & store rooms, gardens and paddock extending to just over 4.3 acres, 300 metres of fishing rights along chalk based River Mimram.
Set behind a knapped flint wall, Valley Farm is a beautiful period property which is believed to originate from the mid/late 1600's. Those with a sporting interest will be delighted to learn that Valley Farm boasts fishing rights along 300 meters of the chalk based River Mimram, and for those with an equestrian interest, there is the opportunity to convert the existing barns to stabling and utilise the adjoining paddock for keeping ponies or horses at home. Alternatively, subject to the necessary planning consents, the vendors have had plans drawn up to convert the barn into a 2 bedroom dwelling, approximately 700sq ft.
The accommodation is arranged over 2 levels, with all bedrooms enjoying views of the rolling hills of the surrounding countryside. The property has been sympathetically extended in the late 1980's, with meticulous attention to detail, enhancing and restoring the fine period style of the house. There is an attractive hand-built farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room, which is well fitted with painted units and boasts a large walk-in larder and cast iron stove. Leading off, there is a generous utility room providing ample space for laundry. The delightful sitting room, with its focal point fireplace and woodburner, creates a warm and cosy environment and the elegant dining room with fireplace sits next to the kitchen.
The master bedroom, well fitted study and one of the guest rooms, are located at one end of the house and are served by a separate staircase winding up from the inner lobby. This master bedroom benefits from a bright and well-appointed en suite bathroom and a large walk-in dressing room. There is a large guest bedroom with fitted cupboards and a further guest room, each sharing the family bathroom, and are accessed by a separate staircase leading up from the main hallway.
Valley Farm sits in grounds extending to approximately 4.3 acres with the River Mimram meandering along one of the boundaries. Set at the rear of the property is a large flagstone terrace which overlooks the river; an ideal place to sit and watch the abundance of wildlife that visit. There is a courtyard style ornamental garden featuring a clematis covered arbour area that leads onto a well-tended lawned garden. The remaining grounds are arranged as wild meadows with wild flowers and pathway that follows around the perimeter and along the riverbank.
The frontage of the property is walled with a large driveway that leads to a parking area, providing space for several vehicles. There is a traditional timber frame barn that offers parking for 2 cars, with a wood store attached. There is also a large open barn with potential for further development, subject to planning permission, for a 2 bedroom dwelling plans available to view.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
