Middledown Farm is an unlisted five bedroom
farmhouse, surrounded by its own land, offering well-presented, flexible and spacious accommodation. The south-facing house has retained many of its original period features, but
benefits from many modern features including underfloor heating downstairs and double glazing throughout.
An entrance porch leads to a sitting room with attractive period features, including an inglenook fireplace with a wood burner, as well as exposed beams. To the right of the sitting room is a dining room, also benefitting from an inglenook fireplace with a wood burner, as well as a limestone floor.
The large, open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room has a limestone floor, high ceiling and large picture windows, which look out towards the grounds and provide plenty of natural light. The stylish kitchen is wellequipped, with a large central kitchen island,
an oil-fired Alpha an a stainless steel Butler sink. There is ample space for a large dining table and a wood burner provides a cosy focal point within the sitting room.
The French Doors open onto the south facing paved terrace along the front of the house, ideal for enjoying the lovely views, for al fresco dining and entertaining.
To the rear of the house is a useful boot room with further storage units and a double Butler sink, plus a snug/play room and a laundry room with beech worktops, two Butler sinks and a downstairs shower room.
Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms and a
single bedroom. The four front-facing bedrooms all benefit from wonderful views of the gardens, grounds and the surrounding woodland. The spacious double-aspect master bedroom has an attractive high ceiling, with the A-frame exposed, generous fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with a large walk-in shower and a marble basin and bath. A family bathroom with separate shower completes the first floor.
The Granary Annexe
The annexe, known as The Granary, offers fantastic flexibility to be used as separate self contained, additional living/hobby/office space or to provide useful additional income via letting. Recently renovated, The Granary has a separate entrance via a covered porch/sitting area which leads into a large light double height open plan sitting room/kitchen. There is a double bedroom area and family bathroom.

driveway which leads down to the farmhouse and annexe, adjacent to which is a single garage. A gravelled forecourt in front of the property provides ample parking space for numerous vehicles. The large gardens immediately adjacent
to the house are laid to lawn and slope gently down towards the boundary, beyond which is an
area of woodland.
The land completely surrounds the farmhouse,
