Georgian family house in Glemsford on the market for £2million
Court Farm, in Park Lane, Glemsford, is an outstanding Georgian family house, with excellent character and substance, superbly set in beautiful grounds of about 7.5 acres, with a superb range of outbuildings and barns.
The property is a classic red brick farmhouse under a slate roof built in 1812, at the end of the Georgian era, with a slightly earlier brick and flint farmyard, which is now incorporated into the garden.
The house has been sympathetically extended and improved to the side and rear by the current owners, adding a modern living space in a stunning orangery, leading off the kitchen.
Many original features and much of the layout of the house have been retained, and it is presented and maintained to a very high standard.
It also benefits from high ceilings and well-proportioned rooms throughout and features open fireplaces, sash windows with intact shutters and expansive views across the Stour Valley to the south and the gardens and grounds to the east.
The ground floor includes a reception hall, a drawing room, a dining room, and an exceptional open plan kitchen/breakfast/family room, a light and airy space that sits at the heart of the house, which opens out into the orangery that then leads into the garden.
On the first floor, there are five spacious double bedrooms, a family bathroom and an en-suite bathroom to the guest bedroom. The master bedroom enjoys a well-designed walk-in wardrobe and shoe cupboard and an en-suite with a view of the delightful grounds.
Court Farm is approached by an in/out driveway with the front access across a paddock to the south and through a gate to the side of the house, with the rear access over a hedge lined gravel drive from the west side.
To this side there is a large area of predominantly lawned grounds with a selection of mature and young trees, a kitchen garden area, orchard, chicken run and garden shed. A walk way between the house and the outbuildings leads to the farmyard garden area.
The enclosed main gardens are to the south and east of the house with the former farmyard superbly incorporated. The owners have upgraded and utilised the outbuildings and barns very well.
The guide price is £2,000,000. Viewing is by appointment. Contact agents Jackson-Stops on 01284 700535 or click here.
