The property is approached through a magnificent reception hall with its timbered walls, ceilings and large open fireplace with stone surround. The room creates a dramatic entrance to this wonderful property. The reception hall provides access to the principal rooms of the main house including the oak panelled drawing room, kitchen and study. The kitchen has been modestly furnished, in keeping with the period of the house, featuring a large inglenook fireplace and a four oven Aga which adds further to the charm of this flag stone floored room. Beyond the kitchen is an excellent family room believed to possibly once have been the dairy. A utility room, pantry and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation. A staircase from the rear hallway leads down to some extensive cellars as well as an original stairway up to the first floor. On the first floor, a magnificent vaulted master bedroom is situated at the eastern end of the house close to a large family bathroom. There are 3 further bedrooms and a first floor sitting room. The rear staircase and a further family bathroom complete the first floor accommodation.
THE COTTAGE The adjoining cottage to Abbotts Barton Farmhouse can be either approached from the ground floor of the farmhouse or via its own separate access. The front door leads through a wonderful cottage kitchen/dining area with a flagstone floor and there is a separate sitting room. The sitting room is particularly attractive once again featuring a beautiful stone fireplace and a door leads out into the rear gardens. On the first floor there are 2 bedrooms and a family bathroom. The cottage also has a large cellar. The cottage is currently being utilised as part of the farmhouse but could easily be separated to create annexed accommodation.
OUTSIDE Outside the property consists of approximately 1.2 acres of lawns, orchard and walled gardens. The property is approached through a five bar gate leading via a gravel tree lined driveway to the rear parking area and garage. The walled gardens at the front of the property are incredibly attractive with areas of terraced lawn ordered by stone pathways with clipped box hedging, rose collection and specimen trees. A terrace adjacent to the front of the property makes the most of its south facing aspect. To the rear of the house there is a secure environment laid mainly to lawn with beautifully flowering shrub beds. A recently constructed Alitex greenhouse makes for a delightful summerhouse. Next to the kitchen is a small herb garden with outbuildings.
