A wonderful 5 bedroom house built in 2004 of approximately 6807 sq ft set in glorious grounds of approximately 5.52 acres with equestrian facilities and outstanding views across the open countryside.
Larchfold is a striking equestrian property completed in 2004 which provides modern and contemporary living accommodation set in an idyllic rural position in an area which is designated An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The house benefits from an impressive galleried entrance hall with contemporary spiral staircase, drawing room with ceiling to floor glazing and French doors opening out onto the gardens. Of particular note is the kitchen which is sleek and modern with black corian worktops and opens out into the dining room and family room, both of which have spectacular views over the gardens and beyond.
The first and second floors provide generous bedroom accommodation interspersed with galleried landing spaces which give a great sense of space. The master bedroom includes an en suite bathroom and dressing room with internal staircase which leads to another good sized room. There is an impressive second bedroom with en suite bathroom. Additionally there are three further double bedrooms, served by a large family bathroom. Larchfold is approached through electric wooden gates which open onto an impressive and sweeping gravel driveway leading up to the house via a second set of wrought iron electric gates. The equestrian facilities are superb and include 4 stables, a tack room, feed store and hay barn which is accessed from its own driveway. There are also 3 paddocks with shelters. Leading directly from the house to the rear is an attractive terrace area with views over the gardens and land. The gardens wrap around the house and include a formal lawn, woodland and paddocks. There is ample parking for cars in front of the house as well as a triple garage which could easily be converted into an annexe and double car port.
