Cranford Farm is a very spacious, attached character farmhouse set within approximately 3.91 acres of delightful gardens and grounds, which includes its very own private fishing lake which the selling agent understands is perfect for any keen angler, a potential business or for someone who just wants to relax and enjoy the wildlife, peace and quiet, ‘the good life’ etc. There are also two detached cabins, one which is nestled within a private wooded area overlooking a stunning pond and the other benefiting from its own garden – both of which could be used for ancillary accommodation, holiday letting, studio, office or combination of such uses subject to any necessary planning permission. The property itself has more recently been updated by the current owners and offers spacious, versatile and well-presented accommodation with generous gardens and extensive parking.
An attractive porch leads into the reception hall, which gives access to the principle rooms including the sitting room with wood burner, the family room which is almost split into two sections but still presents an open plan layout with part being used as the more snug area and the other side the main TV room with wood burner and slate hearth. From this room is access to the only downstairs (double) bedroom that benefits from an en-suite WC with sink (perfect for dual occupation or guest room). A door leads to the store room and beyond this is a utility room/WC. The kitchen has underfloor heating and includes a range of higher and lower modern units with quartz worktops, inset Belfast sink, space for a gas stove, extractor fan, integrated wine cooler and dishwasher. There is a door to a large walk-in pantry, polished tiled flooring and French doors leading out to the patio and garden. The sizeable utility room/boot room is perfect for coats, boots, fridge/freezer and includes a WC with sink. Underfloor central heating in the kitchen and utility rooms.
The spacious and well proportioned accommodation continues to the first floor where all of the 4 bedrooms are generous in size. Bedroom 1, being the largest, includes a range of fitted wardrobes and a quality en-suite which comprises modern freestanding bath, shower cubical, WC and sink. Bedroom 2 also benefits from en-suite facilities. There is also the airing cupboard on this level and the family bathroom, finished to a good standard and includes a walk-in double shower, WC and sink. Access to the loft from the landing.
Garden to the house
Cranford Farm has a gated entrance with a sweeping drive that leads to the front of the property with extensive parking for a number of vehicles, boats, motorhome etc. From here you have access to the lake, wooded pond area, both cabins, outbuildings and the main house. The main house benefits from a private and secluded garden that wraps around the property and includes large areas of lawn, patio areas for outdoor dining, children’s play area, garden shed and other areas of space which have potential for more garden, orchard, vegetable garden etc.
The fishing lake
The lake is simply stunning, is approximately 1.5 acres and has been created by its current owner and is perfect for any keen angler, a potential business or for someone who just wants to relax by their own lake with a glass of wine. The lake is stocked with mainly fast-growing mirror carp. There are also two quality lakeside timber ‘Fishing Cabins’ equipped with electricity and built in beds (2x single beds in each pod/cabin), with fishing straight from the comfort of the decking.
1) A detached cabin with electrics, WC and sink set within a private and almost hidden idyllic setting overlooking a fantastic wooded area with large pond, paths around and wooden bridge.
2) The former garage which has now been replaced with a detached cabin with space for bed, and TV area. Electrics fitted. Garden to front. No drainage connected but potential to do so, however an outside toilet and shower is in close proximity along with a kitchenette, fridge etc.
Both could be ideal for ancillary accommodation, holiday let, studio, office or combination of such uses subject to any necessary planning permission.
Within the parking area and within close proximity to the cabins and the fishing lake is a portable shower and toilet unit and a detached kitchenette unit/office. These could be perfect if anyone intends running the fishing lake and cabins as a business.
Oil central heating. Private drainage. Mains and private water. Two boreholes on site.
