Tanglewood Farm is an attractive stone farmhouse under a slate roof, dating back to 1840. The property originally comprised of two detached cottages, which the present owners have imaginatively joined to create a charming and comfortable family home. Internally the property retains a wealth of period features with exposed beams and period fireplaces.
The main reception hall links the house and annexe and has a fine oak floor and staircase. The impressive oak floored kitchen/breakfast room has been designed to take full advantage of the outstanding views, glazed doors open to a decked garden terrace with a stunning vista. The kitchen is fully fitted with quality units incorporating a Belfast sink and four oven Aga. The open plan room creates a spacious environment, perfect for family living and links to a traditional pantry and laundry room. Steps lead up from the kitchen to the adjoining sitting room with a period fireplace inset with a wood burning stove. Beyond the hall is also a large conservatory, with quarry tiled floor. This is used as a family room and connects the main house to the 1 bedroom guest annexe. The annexe also has a separate external access. On the first floor of the farmhouse there are 4 bedrooms including 2 en suites and a shower room.
The Traditional Barn
Situated to the north of the farmhouse, across a flagstone courtyard is a substantial traditional stone barn, which has been converted into an informal function room and a self contained office, all re roofed in recent years. The impressive "function room" has been sympathetically converted, retaining the stone walls and making a fine feature of the numerous ventilation slips. The self contained office has a ground floor cloak room and store room with first floor office space. This ancillary accommodation provides good potential for a variety of uses, subject to the necessary planning consents.
The gardens lie mainly to the south and west of the property and are predominately laid to lawn and sheltered by mature trees and shrubs. A raised decking area adjoins the house and steps lead down to the main lawn, where there is an attractive wild life eco pool.
