Opening into the central reception, Twelvetrees Farm immediately stuns with characterful period features yet up-to-date contemporary appeal. Throughout the home are exposed beams and stonework, original tiled flooring, open fireplaces with stoves, and charming views from all its numerous windows. All three reception rooms to the right are generously sized, afford plenty of natural light, and present the opportunity for several uses, currently utilised as a family room, office, and lounge. The fourth reception room to the left of the home is used as a playroom. Along the hallway from here are the cloakroom and extra-deep utility cupboard. At the end is the remarkable kitchen/breakfast room—a particularly noteworthy part of the property. Recently refurbished and refitted, it delivers a range of wooden cupboards and drawers, integrated AEG fridge/freezer and Bosch dishwasher, as well as space for a range oven. The island has storage under, a butler sink, and seating provisions. The bi-fold doors open onto the patio and garden, allowing for splendid indoor-outdoor living/dining. Both the bi-folds and the vaulted ceiling give a hugely bright and airy feel.
To the left of the house, the staircase rises to the useful guest suite, comprising a cloakroom, shower room, and double bedroom with wooden flooring and eaves storage cupboard. The staircase from the right leads to the landing, where there are two storage cupboards, a loft hatch, and doors to all first floor rooms. The large master is a superb dual aspect room, with a door to the adjoining en suite shower room, and the fantastic dressing room beyond, which could also work as a nursery or home office. There are two further bedrooms—a substantial double and good-sized single. The modern family bathroom incorporates a three-piece suite of sink, wc, and P-shaped bath with side-mounted taps, a rainhead shower, and a glass screen.
Set off the quiet road, the ornamental front garden contains a well, and is stocked with various plants and shrubs. Ample off-road parking is available to the driveway, as well as the timber-built double garage. The south-facing rear garden is entirely unoverlooked, and an absolutely amazing outdoor addition to the indoor accommodation. Elements consist of an immaculate patio directly from the kitchen/dining room, a very neat lawn, beautifully planted borders, a rose-covered archway, and a secluded gravel seating area to the side. Gates lead to both sides, and there is an access door to the garage.
