The Property
Catherton Farmhouse is Grade II listed and is believed to date from 18th Century with later extensions and boasts a host of period features including exposed wall and ceiling timbers, fireplaces and feature stone walls. The current owners have greatly enhanced the house over nearly 25 years to create a truly delightful home offering extremely flexible accommodation arranged over two floors.

The reception rooms are located off the large entrance hall which boasts a quarry tiled floor and feature fireplace housing a woodburning stove. The sitting room/study currently overlooks the front garden and neighbouring countryside, whilst the drawing room has dual aspect windows flooding the room with natural light. The delightful country kitchen/breakfast room is triple aspect, with a good variety of fitted storage units, a four oven Aga along with a back-up gas cooker. There is an adjacent utility, boot room and a cloakroom.

The well-proportioned dining/garden room has a vaulted ceiling, a Clearview woodburning stove and French doors opening to the enclosed rear garden with paved patio, terrace and access to the indoor swimming pool.

On the first floor, the master bedroom suite includes a dressing room with fitted wardrobes and storage, together with an ensuite bathroom with a separate shower. There are four further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Catherton Farmhouse is an attractive family home which has been tastefully and neutrally decorated throughout. There is planning permission for an extension to the house should additional space be required.

The house is approached off a quiet country road through an entrance off a sweeping driveway enclosed by a stone wall and bordered with a variety of flowering and herbaceous beds. To the rear of the property is an enclosed garden with lawn, paved patio and separate paved terrace in front of the pool house. There is also
a tranquil raised deck area under a climber covered pergola; the seating area is perfectly placed to enjoy far-reaching countryside views.
