Well-appointed detached village house standing in charming landscaped gardens and grounds which extend to just under an acre

Furlong Farm House is a substantial and well-appointed detached village house standing in charming landscaped gardens and grounds which extend to just under an acre. Built circa 1900, the limewashed brick property has been a wonderful family home and has undergone considerable refurbishment over the years. The house benefits from good ceiling height throughout, offering spacious and bright accommodation over two floors. Additionally, it offers further potential to extend significantly subject to planning.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors and comprises: reception hall with flagstone floor, a bespoke Plain English kitchen with handmade units and Rangemaster double oven with 5-ring induction hob. This opens into a dining area with French doors to the terrace and underfloor heating. The drawing room with stone fireplace is dual aspect and is a lovely room for more formal entertaining. There is also a garden room, which currently serves as a further reception room. On the first floor is a wonderful dual aspect principal bedroom suite complimented by an en-suite bathroom with four additional bedrooms and a family bathroom. The current owners secured valuable planning permission under the design of award-winning architects Tyack Architects, for a single-story side extension and rear two-story extension to provide additional storage (now lapsed), a generous garden room and reconfiguration of the first floor to provide an even larger master bedroom suite while retaining four further bedrooms.

The property is set back from the lane behind a Cotswold stone wall with ample space for parking. The garden to the front is landscaped around a mature apple tree with herbaceous borders complimented by topiary Box, Yew and Beech. The substantial rear garden, mainly laid to lawn with Beech hedging, is south-facing and enjoys summer sun all day. Clipped Holm Oaks and decorative oak gates lead to a kitchen garden with quince tree; running parallel to the kitchen garden, an allée of Crab-apples underplanted with snowdrops, crocuses, and narcissi continues to an orchard with garden store. Here, a romantic wild-flower meadow provides a haven for natural life, including butterflies, dragonflies, insects, and birds.
