For anyone wanting a very attractive period property offering a great deal of accommodation at a reasonable price in this area, Delburne Farmhouse may be the solution. The reasonable price obviously reflects the proximity to the A40 which is just beyond the lane from Whitchurch to the Great Doward (next Hamlet).  Certainly road noise within the house with its thick stone walls is not an issue in our opinion.

A neat period style ironwork fence surrounding the front gardens has a gated entrance leading to the attractive painted period style front door with its pretty overhung porch. 

The interior of the house is truly charming with attractive reception rooms leading off a central entrance hallway.  The Sitting Room has the traditional inglenook stone fireplace with massive mantle beam and is fitted with a wood burning stove.  The Sitting Room leads through to the Kitchen at the rear.  The second Reception Room is also a very pleasant room with a period style fireplace having a window seat to the front aspect and French doors to the gardens.  To the rear of the house is the large and welcoming Kitchen/Breakfast Room with custom built units incorporating an oil fired Rayburn cooking range with plenty of space for the traditional farmhouse sized table and chairs.  French doors lead out to the paved sun terrace.  At some stage the house has been extended to provide further ground floor accommodation which consists of three further rooms (including a bathroom) which has a separate, independent access.  These rooms are in need of some improvement i.e. minor plaster work, paint and flooring but could essentially provide for many uses perhaps a home office or annex suite.

Upstairs are five excellent bedrooms arranged on two floors. The two bedrooms on the top floor having vaulted ceilings and a communal area between that could suffice as a small TV area/study area also having storage cupboards into the eaves.  Three further bedrooms are on the first floor include a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The family bathroom also situated on this floor is decorated in period style with painted panelling etc.

Outside to the front are established gardens to either side of the path leading to the front door, the garden enclosed with conifer trees and neat wrought iron railings. To the left hand side of the house is gravelled parking with space for several vehicles. A separate access leads to the rear of the property giving direct access to the stables/kennels, outbuildings and to the paddocks etc. To the right of the house and to the rear is an attractive paved courtyard area with planters and fruit trees etc.  Gated access leads to stone steps down to the extensive cellars.

NB the 2.5 acres of sloping pasture land are available by separate negotiation - price on application.

IN SUMMARY
Delburne Farm is a large and charming home with many period features; the welcoming fireplaces and the farmhouse kitchen certainly make it stand out in our minds. At this price you are getting a lot for your money however the proximity of the road may be an issue for some albeit not immediately outside. The current owners have certainly not found it to be a problem in fact have seen it as a plus point as former dog breeders they found the easy accessibility particularly useful.
Certainly the charm, the spacious accommodation and the possibility of acreage make it a house worth viewing at this price.
