The Property
Originally believed to date back to the later 17th century, Slade Farmhouse is a striking and beautifully renovated listed village house which has recently been extended to provide excellent family accommodation with an annexe/studio above the garage. The accommodation is well laid out and includes an impressive dining hall and two further reception rooms which have a dual aspect and are light and well-proportioned with inglenook fireplaces. A sympathetically designed extension was added to the house in 2012 which created a superb and beautifully fitted 28' kitchen/breakfast room and adjoining utility room on the ground floor with guest bedroom and bathroom above. The master bedroom suite is in the original building where there are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom with a further bedroom and bathroom in the annexe.

The property has a five bar gate opening onto a generous parking area in front of the oak framed garage providing garaging for three cars with the annexe/home office above. The gardens lie predominately to the rear of the house and are mainly laid to lawn with mature trees and hedging providing a good deal of privacy and seclusion. French doors from the kitchen/breakfast room and rear hall open onto a south facing stone terrace with flower borders.
