The Property

Upon entering Rumburgh Place Farm we are welcomed by the generous entrance hall where the feeling of space and un-compromised character that runs throughout the home is instantly apparent. Doors open to our two main reception rooms whilst our oak broad step staircase rises to the first floor landing. A door below the stairs leads us to the brick lined cellar whilst a second concealed staircase leads us to the 'secret merchants room' found on a split level hidden in the centre of the house with discreet windows looking out to the accommodation. To the right of the hall we step into the sitting room where a large window commands a view of the front garden and pours light onto the pamment tiled floor. Oak beams line the ceiling and a large open fire is set in the ornate mantel. Across the hall we enter the drawing room, this vast dual aspect room mirrors the character found in the sitting room whilst our wood burning stove is set in a full height brick fireplace. Opening the door to the rear we find our kitchen diner overlooking the attractive rear gardens, terracotta tiles line the room and our Rayburn finds home in the fireplace, two doors open to the gardens whilst a butler's sink is set in the handmade units of this superb family space. From the kitchen we step through the rear entrance hall where a second staircase rises to the first floor and a door opens to the 'old dairy'. This vast room boasts shuttered windows over looking the grounds whilst beautiful bricks line the floor. A door from here opens to the ground floor lavatory/utility room which at over 18.ft echoes the immense scale of this impressive building. Returning to the entrance hall we climb the stairs to our generous first floor landing where the character is further enhanced by the most impressive exposed original floorboards. The master bedroom is set to the head of the stairs and enjoys a view of the grounds to the front and side, a cast iron fireplace is found to the rear wall and a large storage cupboard is adjacent. Stepping over the landing we find our second and third double bedrooms. The front bedroom enjoys the view of the gardens and again boasts and original fireplace and built in cupboard. At the rear of the landing we pass the loft access hatch and step down to the rear of the property. Stairs rise to this second landing from the rear entrance hall and we we find three further double bedrooms all enjoying a view of the rear gardens and open countryside beyond. The bathroom is set to the head of the staircase comprising a bath, lavatory and wash basin whilst a large cupboard houses the hot water tank. This completes the accommodation.



Outside

Approaching the property we pass the tree lined driveway as we arrive at this imposing family home. On the right we find gated access to the front paddock whilst at the head of the drive ample off road parking provides access to the double garage and impressive timber barn. A wrought iron gate leads to our front garden whilst access to the side leads to the rear of the property. To the front of the house a cobble path leads through a beautifully designed ornamental garden framed by box hedging from where we step onto the front lawns. A range of established trees and perennial shrubs are set to the garden boundary as the space leads us through a carefully planted orchard to the side of the property and into the rear gardens. At the rear a vast cobble and pamment courtyard is bisected by a range of low lying flower beds and attractive hedges. A selection of deciduous trees soften the space and we find access from here leading past the stables and pig stys to the rear paddock. Separating our garden and paddock we find a vast timber framed building set below a pan tile roof which provides the two studios and workroom, whilst back on the drive way we pass our double garage and step into the extensive timber barn which in turn opens to the brick workshop and tin barn set to the far left boundary.
