A fantastic period family home set in grounds of approximately 1.5 acres, located in a semi-rural position on the outskirts of the popular village of Lingfield. No onward chain.
This character family home boasts an abundance of original features in every room. The ground floor benefits from lots of reception space. We love the huge open fireplaces in both the sitting and family rooms, perfect for getting cosy on cold winter evenings. Our favourite room is the kitchen and it will become evident why when viewing. Our Vendor has cleverly created a number of unique storage cupboards and units which help create a really quirky country feel. A centre island provides plenty of preparation space and there is also a double butler sink and large larder cupboard. This is definitely a kitchen you would want to cook in. A double aspect dining room is conveniently located to the side of the kitchen. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a light and airy orangery which benefits from a wood burning stove. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Stairs lead to the second floor, where the fabulous master bedroom and ensuite shower room can be located.
Outside, the property is approached by gravel driveway which runs along side the house to a turning circle and the rear gardens. There are a number of useful outbuildings. A spacious workshop and storage area can be located on one side and there is a recently constructed timber garage to the rear of the drive. The property also benefits from a detached carpentry/joinery workshop which boasts a saw bench, plainer, spindle moulder, saw, mortiser and extraction unit. There is also an outside WC.
The house is surrounded by gardens with the majority to the rear. A decked seating area gives over to lawn with a further area for a table and chairs in one corner. The garden slopes down into a fantastic paddock. In total the plot comprises 1.5 acres.
LOCATION Golards Farm House is located on the outskirts of Lingfield. The village is served by two excellent coffee shops. The more nationally recognised Costa Coffee and the smaller, independent Rosies is popular with local families with young children.
