DESCRIPTION Boxted Farm House is an elegant Georgian residence which boasts wonderful period features and architecture synonymous with properties constructed within this era. This splendid property has been a family home to the current residents for twenty five years, who advise us that Boxted Farm House has featured in many photo shoots as a location, appearing in publications such as the Sunday Times, Elle and Glamour. The property occupies a fabulous rural position amongst open farmland and sits proudly within its own stunning gardens extending beyond half an acre.
STEP INSIDE Internally, the property has been lovingly maintained and sympathetically improved by the current owners which now boasts a complimentary blend of modern day living coupled with an abundance of period charm.
Upon entry, what was once an enclosed entrance hallway is now an inviting open space with high ceilings, an ornate feature fireplace, wood panelling and sash windows with bespoke folding shutters. A feature in most windows of the house. The farmhouse style kitchen, which has bespoke fitted units with marble work surfaces, a five door AGA and slate tiled floor leads directly to the dining room which features an exposed brick fireplace and wooden floor. Also accessed via the kitchen is the large walk in pantry with exposed brick floor, a utility space/boot room and cloakroom and steps lead to a large functional cellar. Completing the ground floor is an elegant sitting room with double aspect providing views over the garden, high ceilings and feature fireplace, French doors lead directly onto the grounds, with floor to ceiling moulded shutters.
An attractive spindle staircase leads to the first floor, which has a beautiful galleried feature with sash window to the front of the property offering uninterrupted views over open farmland. The sumptuous double aspect master bedroom with engineered oak floor, sash windows and fitted wardrobes along one wall has been cleverly divided by a central wall/storage unit which can be passed on either side to access a luxurious en-suite shower room. The first floor is made up of three further well proportioned bedrooms served by a family bathroom.
STEP OUTSIDE Boxted Farm House is accessed via a five bar wooden gate and gravel driveway and sits proudly within beautifully manicured gardens extending to beyond half an acre. The wrap around gardens and kitchen garden with greenhouse boast a variety of well established specimen trees to include Mulberry, Walnut and Oak as well as some wonderfully decorative flower beds and hedged David Austin rose beds located near a shingle patio seating area.
Within the grounds are various useful outbuildings such as the summer house/studio, a wooden clad workshop/storage unit and a garden/BBQ outdoor kitchen which has running water and electric supply, located in a shaded area ideal for entertaining guests. A charming period brick built barn also with running water and electric has great potential for a spacious, vaulted detached annex.
