Oaklands Farm is a handsome period house, thought to date from the 19th Century with later additions. It is located in an idyllic setting and is a wonderful family home. The main house has excellent accommodation with rooms of substantial proportions, high ceilings, and convenient layout. On entry, a spacious and long hallway gives access to all ground floor reception rooms. The open plan kitchen/ dining room is a particularly stunning room of over 28’ in length featuring a stylish bespoke fitted kitchen with island and stool seating, as well as a number of integrated appliances including a Calor gas fired Aga, dishwasher, a significant catering standard larder fridge and an under-counter wine fridge. The dining end of the room can accommodate a large table and chairs to seat about 10 to 12 people as well as more casual seating at the sides. Of particular note are the French doors at the end of the room which give access to a terraced area (with loggia over), garden and pool. The terrace runs along the side of the house to the adjacent, and spacious drawing room (also with access to the terrace via French doors), making these two rooms a wonderful choice for entertaining and family leisure during the warmer months. The drawing room itself has a large open fireplace with elegant mantel. To the front of the house there is a good sized double aspect family room with log burner. Conveniently placed next door, is a study with fitted desk. The rest of the ground floor accommodation is made up of utility room, which is next to the kitchen and has fitted units, a rear hallway, and a cloakroom. To the first floor are five bedrooms, all of which are of a significant size and have fitted wardrobes. Of particular note is the master bedroom suite with dressing room with substantial fitted wardrobes and shoe racks, and an en suite bathroom with freestanding bath and shower. A family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation. In addition to the main house, the property also benefits from two sets of ancillary accommodation; a two bedroom annexe and a one bedroom/sitting room studio. Both are on the ground floor and self-contained, with their own entrances, providing a number of solutions for different lifestyle scenarios. Of particular note, the annexe has a sauna room, and a wine store fitted with a Master Fondis air conditioning to keep wines at an optimum temperature. Attached to the annexe is a separate dry store/gym. Because Oaklands Farm is three properties, resulting in Multiple Dwellings Relief, and as such, Stamp Duty Land Tax is very substantially reduced.
