THE PROPERTY

Sunnydene Farm is a fantastic family home which enjoys versatile accommodation, a separate guest cottage and equestrian facilities, offering between them a multitude of possibilities and a diverse plot including a wonderful enclosed garden, a productive orchard, equestrian facilities including stables and a former menage, and a sizeable paddock, it is clear to see that this superb property offers a highly desirable country lifestyle, with the convenience of town centre amenities and major transport links within very easy reach.

 

Entering the property through the front door, you are met with a wide, welcoming entrance hall from which both reception rooms can be accessed. The kitchen/breakfast room can be found at the rear of the property. Fitted units and integrated appliances provide all that is required by the busy modern cook as well as ample storage, whilst the utility/boot room offers space and plumbing for domestic necessities. Also on the ground floor is a useful cloakroom, which exhibits an original high-level cistern. The scale and quality of the ground floor accommodation is mirrored upstairs, where 4 well proportioned bedrooms and the family bathroom can be found. Planning permission has previously been granted to extend the property in order to provide an additional bedroom with en suite facilities and additional utility room space. This has now lapsed, but we understand that conversations with the local planning department have indicated that renewal is achievable.

LAVENDER COTTAGE

Sunnydene Farm benefits from a self-contained annexe which enjoys proximity to the main house, making it ideal for those expecting regular guests or accommodating teenagers or dependent relatives. With it's own independent front door, a separate double bedroom, an open-plan living area, a shower room, and a private sun terrace, this superb cottage, which is completely detached from the house, could also lend itself to holiday letting in order to generate an income stream, or use as an office for those working from home.

OUTSIDE

With a generous, established and primarily level plot amounting to just under 2.5 acres, there is more than a suggestion of various fantastic outdoor lifestyles to be achieved at Sunnydene Farm. From Wyke Road, the property is approached along a sweeping, gated driveway which culminates in a parking and turning circle around an ornamental parterre. Landscaped pleasure gardens surround the property, including several seating areas, offering multiple excuses for al fresco dining, relaxing and entertaining. The orchard and nuttery, in which mature fruit and nut trees including several varieties of apple, pear, hazelnut and almond can be found, represents the chance to achieve a touch of the good life , with potential for further landscaping to create vegetable beds if desired. Alternatively, the current vendors have created a produce garden on the former menage, which includes a poly tunnel, greenhouse and temporary raised beds. There is also a chicken coop with an enclosed run.

 

Those with equestrian interests will recognise great potential to re-instate the property's suitability for keeping horses at home. A block of 4 stables, with associated tack and feed stores, can be found adjacent to the menage and within easy reach of the paddock, which is ring fenced with stock-proof wire.
