Built on the footprint of a former dairy farm, this unique property is situated in a very peaceful location with wonderful views over its gardens and surrounding countryside beyond. Predominantly on one level and built around a central courtyard, Fiddlesticks Farm has extensive and extremely flexible accommodation with all the principal reception rooms overlooking the surrounding gardens.

Designed by the current owners 22 years ago, the property is presented to a high standard and includes handmade doors and windows made from Idigbo hardwood and underfloor heating throughout. Most rooms have high A-frame ceilings, making them light and bright with a wonderful sense of proportion throughout.

To the rear of the property is the large formal drawing/dining area with doors opening out onto the Ipe hardwood terrace. At the dining end are fitted cupboards with a sink and drinks fridge. Open plan to this is the kitchen with an excellent number of fitted cupboards, a 4-oven AGA plus separate module, 2 large central islands, 3 sinks and spaces for additional white goods. All kitchen worktops and bathroom vanity units are custom made with Avonite work surfaces. There is also a large walk-in pantry. Through the kitchen is an informal dining area with a large chimney breast with a gas fire separating the area from the sitting area. Doors from here open out onto the south-facing terrace and the central courtyard.

The master bedroom completes the rooms to the rear of the house and enjoys wonderful views. There are two walk-in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom with large Jacuzzi bath, separate shower and a sauna. There are five further bedrooms all with en-suite bathrooms, two with large walk-in wardrobes and one with a Jack & Jill bathroom. There is also a TV/music room, utility room and boot room. On the first floor to the western wing, there is a large study with views over the paddock and on the eastern wing, there is a pretty vaulted double bedroom with en-suite bathroom.

The property is approached through an electric gate and the drive divides in two, either leading to the front of the house or to the side where the carport and extensive car parking is located. There is a 5 bay carport with storage above which is accessed from the bike shed. At the other end of the carport is a further room, currently set up as a gym with toilet, sink and cupboards with doors opening onto the terrace. The gardens are mostly to the rear of the property. A large decked terrace is adjacent to the house and steps lead down to the garden. This is mostly laid to lawn with flower beds and numerous mature trees. Established hedges border the gardens. There is a large pond with a small Ipe hardwood terraced area surrounded by bamboo. There is also a championship sized Le Court Tournament Pro tennis court with a twisted pile synthetic grass surface, which is enclosed by Thuja trees. A gently sloping paddock of about 12 acres lies to the northwest of the house and is currently grazed by sheep.
