Prestberries Farm

Reception Hall
The substantial hall welcomes you in the home and visitors are instantly captivated with the beautiful exposed timber beams and flag stone flooring which continues throughout the ground floor.

Farmhouse Kitchen
This vast room is full of all the charm that you would expect from a traditional farmhouse kitchen. A wonderful space for the family to gather for breakfast around the table while the food is prepared on the Aga. The kitchen is well appointed offering a range of base level cupboards with work tops and free-standing furniture. The dual aspect windows offer views over the garden and a thumb latch stable door leads you outside. At the rear of the kitchen is a pantry cupboard to provide further storage.

Family Room
The family room is located next to the kitchen. The room is flooded with natural light from the three windows which overlook the grounds.

Dining Room
Sitting in the heart of the home is a splendid dining room with timber beams and traditional thumb latch doors. This wonderful space is perfect for large family gatherings and parties. French doors to the far end of the room lead out to the patio. This is a glorious spot for admiring the pond and gardens.

Drawing Room
An imposing open brick fireplace with timber mantle creates a lovely focal point to this substantial period room. The room is subtly divided by the full height timber beams. The large windows offer a chance to perch and enjoy the views over the garden.

To the front of the property is a private study with open fireplace and timber mantle. The room is situated near to an external door which would be convenient for those running a business from home and requiring a private entrance. There are stunning views of the grounds through the two large windows.

First Floor
The first floor accommodation is arranged off a large central landing. This vast space is the perfect location for a library with room for occasional seating.

The master suite enjoys a fabulous, pitched roof with exposed timber beams. Off the bedroom is a dressing room with hanging rails and shelves which in turn leads through to a bathroom with Jack and Jill doors leading back out to the landing.

All six bedrooms enjoy beautiful views over the grounds of the property and farmland beyond. The bedrooms are all of a good size with some benefiting from built-in storage cupboards.

In addition to the en-suite master bathroom, there is a further two bathrooms to serve the bedrooms. Each bathroom is well appointed to include a bath with shower over, WC and wash hand basin.


To the rear of the home is a two-bedroom annexe with private entrance. On the ground floor is an open plan living space with dual aspect views over the grounds. The kitchen is well appointed with a range of wall and base mounted units and worktop. There is an integrated oven with gas hob and extractor fan. Two sets of French doors lead outside to the garden. Stairs lead up to the first floor where there are two good sized bedrooms and a shower room. The accommodation is flexible and can be kept for private occupation or incorporated in to the main house.


From the country lane, a five-bar gate leads you into the sweeping gravel driveway which is lined with mature trees. The formal gardens which surround the property have been beautifully curated by the owners to incorporate a sunken garden and many areas for seating to appreciate the tranquil setting. The picturesque pond found at the front of the property is framed with a beautiful weeping willow tree. A wooden jetty is perfect for enjoying activities in the water during the warmer months. A large allotment area for growing vegetables is stocked with raised beds and fruit cages. Two flat grass paddocks enjoy beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and are ideal for equestrian use.
