A beautifully finished farmhouse steeped in heritage and character set within the most beautiful moated grounds of c2.64 acres in a sought after village.
Gubberhill Farm is a unique and extremely special Grade II listed former farmhouse and cider press which is believed to date back to 16th century. Much of the appeal of such a property is its setting, within the most glorious and enchanting grounds of c2.64 acres which are made up of formal gardens, an arboretum, and its own ancient moat. It is a home of great character which over the years has been sympathetically and innovatively modernised to retain its charm in a more contemporary style. The house has a wonderfully bright atmosphere and is presented for sale in the most immaculate order with beautiful features throughout illustrating its heritage and era. Its individual layout allows for a flexible living arrangement to suit requirements.
Entrance is gained through a beautiful garden room with full length glass windows, designed to be the central point of the home by interlinking the reception rooms and overlooking the grounds. To one side is the principal reception space including a well-appointed kitchen with a Rayburn, larder, utility, and cloakroom in addition to a dining room with an Inglenook fireplace and a further sitting room which has listed building consent to extend to add a further reception room to overlook the beautiful south and west gardens. To the other side of the atrium, overlooking an outside terrace, is the formal sitting room with the original Cider press. From here, is a door opening to a double bedroom with en suite bathroom on the ground floor. Whilst this is an ideal guest bedroom, it could easily be a further reception room, home gym or study to suit individual requirements.
The excellent bedrooms on the first floor are accessed via separate staircases and have been redesigned to create suites, all enjoying their own luxurious bath or shower rooms. The master and guest bedrooms are reached from a flight of stairs from the internal hallway on the ground floor. Bedroom four is accessed from the sitting room, also on the ground floor.
Much of the charm of Gubberhill Farm is its unique position, enclosed by the most glorious gardens and grounds of circa 2.64 acres. Arranged as formal gardens, an orchard and arboretum with a moat meandering through, the grounds surround the property providing the most idyllic views enjoyed from the house. There is a Shepherds hut within the garden, which makes an ideal home office away from the house. Stocked with a vast variety of trees, shrubs, borders and flower beds the private gardens are undeniably a perfect and balanced setting for a home of this stature.
