Hoppins Farm is a Grade II listed former farmstead comprising a fascinating range of historic buildings including the cider barn, piggery and cart shed. The main accommodation is made up of the original thatched farmhouse, thought to date back to the 17th century, with 19th century additions including the cider barn to the rear. This contrast of architecture has been beautifully complemented by imaginative interior design to offer a modern family home with large spacious living spaces whilst managing to retain the original period charm. The ground floor has the original cross-passage, oak and flagstone floors and underfloor heating. There is a dining room and living room, both with inglenook fireplaces and wood burners, a study and a snug with modern inset fireplace. The first floor has wonderful vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and automatic inset lights along the landing and stairs beautifully fusing old with new. There are three good sized bedrooms, family bathroom and a spectacular master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe and impressive en suite bathroom with shower, bath and twin basins. An oak framed kitchen/breakfast room provides a light, bright living space with full-width windows, beautifully fitted bespoke kitchen units with granite worktops, large pantry, dishwasher, microwave and electric Aga. This opens to the converted cider barn with large family room with vaulted ceilings and exposed timbers. Beyond this, the cleverly designed layout, with large ground floor en suite bedroom and games room above, offers scope for an annexe or self-contained accommodation (subject to necessary consents); ideal for anyone looking for multi-generational living accommodation or additional letting potential. The cider barn has some of the most interesting historical features with unusual 'hammer beams' in the games room marked with writing and signatures thought to have dated back to when the barn was built. Across the pebble cobbled 'Quad' courtyard is the converted piggery offering a beautifully presented, self-contained holiday let with enclosed deck, double bedroom, luxurious en suite bathroom and kitchen/living space.
