This attractive family home is located down a long drive in the most superb rural setting within easy reach of local amenities. Larkstoke Farmhouse is a compelling mix of fresh, light and modern spaces, yet the house retains a clear relationship to the architectural charm of the area. The accommodation throughout is generous and the reception rooms allow a flexibility as to how they can be used. Highlights include the beautiful kitchen/dining room which forms part of an attractive oak framed two-storey extension. The kitchen is fitted with a number of hand-built Neptune cabinets, a large island, AGA and separate electric oven. The dining area to one end of the kitchen has the most wonderful views over the surrounding garden, pond and land; French doors lead out to decking forming a seamless link between the inside and out - perfect for those who enjoy outside dining and entertaining. The four-bedroom, three bath/shower room layout on the first floor makes for comfortable family living. There are attractive vaulted, beamed ceilings in both the master and guest bedrooms with lovely views across the garden and land beyond. A haven for wildlife, Larkstoke Farmhouse sits in an attractive plot extending to approximately 2.85 acres made up of garden, paddocks, pond and woodland. The wide variety of trees and shrubs make for a colourful backdrop throughout the seasons. A useful outbuilding provides a great deal of storage and could be used as a home office/annexe if the relevant consents were obtained and granted. There is a large driveway which offers ample parking.
