Originally constructed in the 18th Century, Cell Park Farm has been extended during the Victorian era and more recently, about 5 years ago, to provide a pleasingly symmetrical house. The present owners have brought this house very much into the 21st Century but with a respectful nod' to the traditional aesthetics of its heritage.
Approached along a private shared driveway, bordered by hedges and rolling fields, you turn by a beautiful brick and flint wall into the gravel driveway which leads to Cell Park Farm.
An elegant veranda porch shelters a heavy front door which leads into a spacious reception hall which displays a subtle sandstone flagstone floor, combining practicality with beauty. The sitting room, garden room and kitchen all lead off this hall.
The kitchen and breakfast/dining area is a delight, with traditional styled hand built painted kitchen units, topped by attractive Italian granite worktops and complimented by a robust 4-oven Aga. In addition, there is a central island unit with a prep sink and breakfast bar. This stunning room, which runs from the front to the back of the house, is a real focal point, or some may say, the hub' of the house. If one enjoys entertaining, then the breakfast/dining area provides ample space to sit 12 to 14 guests comfortably.
There is a substantial utility room adjacent which has been thoughtfully designed to mirror the style of the kitchen. With doors to both the front driveway and indeed one of the garages, this is an ideal place to bring in the weekly shop, especially on wet days. A couple of steps leading down from the cat flap provides a thoughtful feature for feline friends!
The drawing room, originally built in Victorian times, reflects the style of the day with a magnificent bay window overlooking the front gardens and tall French doors, which lead through to the garden room. There are towering, built in bookshelves with cupboards below, providing excellent storage.
Being built in a style which feels like an original part of the house, the recently constructed morning room enjoys a southerly aspect. The lead roof is tiled has a couple of skylights allowing this room to keep cool during the summer months.
Tucked to one side of the hallway, an elegant Georgian fashioned stairway with richly burnished handrail which wind up to the first and second floors.
One wing of the first floor is given over to the master suite which enjoys views over the gardens and over treetops to fields and parkland beyond. With a magnificent bay window to the front, and a large picture sash window to the rear, this room has a beautifully bright and spacious feel. The suite is generous in size with ample space for, not only a large bed and wardrobes, but also sofas and chairs. A perfect place to while away time with a favourite book!
There is a very pretty guest room in the opposite wing of the house, which again is generous in size and has fantastic light. There is a well-appointed en suite bathroom with separate shower.
There are 3 further bedrooms on this floor, 2 sharing a Jack and Jill style bathroom and a family bathroom is adjacent to the smallest bedroom.
Up on the top floor of the house there are 2 substantial bedrooms which have wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. These rooms would be a fabulous place for children to make their own and are usefully served by a cloakroom.
The grounds are a noteworthy feature of the property and feature rolling parkland style gardens leading gently up to a lightly wooded horizon, uninterrupted sunsets are an absolute treat.
Closer to the house, the grounds are manicured with superb lawns immaculate enough for a game of croquet. With a terrace running along the rear, offering great space for outdoor entertaining, and gardens which wrap around both the granary and farmhouse, the setting of the house is really to be enjoyed.
There is a substantial timber frame, open fronted barn next to the house, which could be put to a variety of uses (subject to the usual consents), but currently used for garden machinery.
Attached to the house on one side, is a pair of garages with large loft area and a single garage to the other side with direct access into the house. In addition, there is extensive parking over the private gravel driveway.
Situated to the front of the house is a detached former granary which offers delightful one bedroom mews style accommodation; an ideal opportunity for older teenagers, an au pair, live in staff or for those who need to work from home.
On the ground floor there is a large workshop area which leads into a garage, which in turn links with a separate storeroom.
Running north west of the house is a fabulous parcel of gently sloping pasture land, which, on reaching the top of the field, fabulous far reaching views can be enjoyed across the valley. The land is bordered by post and wire fencing, so ideal for keeping horses or other livestock.
There will be an Overage Provision for the sum of 25% of any increase in value accrued due to any development over and above agricultural use for a period of 25 years.
