A charming and substantial farmhouse with over two acres of land, duck pond, and outbuildings. The grounds include stables, annex, garaging & workshop. Situated on the north east side of Wokingham, in the ward of Hurst, and situated towards the end of a private lane.
Retaining rustic charm in every room, this Grade II Listed farmhouse encompasses grand proportions and homely nooks. Currently split into the main house and a two bedroom cottage (with rental income) these two homes re-connect without major works.
The cottage has its own separate driveway and enclosed gardens, so could be ideal for occasional guests or multi-generational living,
The main farmhouse is a mix of eras, with its origins dating back to the 15th Century. There's an eclectic mix of exposed brick walls, traditional plaster, rustic beamwork, stone flooring and leaded light windows.
The country kitchen features an Aga stove retained in a former chimney breast, with dining area and French doors to the garden. The current owners have recently built a large timber awning and patio - an ideal evening spot for family meals, outdoor cooking and summer entertaining.
Within the 2.25 acre grounds are lawned gardens, plenty of parking hardstanding, garaging & workshops. There's also a uniquely quirky studio annex, perhaps once a hayloft, which has a proven rental history. This has also been ideal for au pair accommodation, and is ideal for a younger person.
Outbuildings include a triple stable block and large (c 1,900 sq ft) workshop and garage building (with WC). This building carries lapsed planning permission to create a detached two bedroom, two storey conversion with spiral staircase and courtyard.
A Few Words from Quarters
"We particularly love the classic good looks of this home, with its timber and iron front door, substantial tiled roof and exposed beams.
Whether you're looking for a fabulous family home with privacy or a lifestyle business, Rushtons Farmhouse will probably spark the imagination. There's scope to create income from the annex and / or cottage and, with an eye to the future, potential to add value by converting the workshop to a two bedroom.
Without changing a thing, this home is the perfect configuration for those wanting their parents close by without losing independence, and the 'hayloft' annex is a perfect hangout for older teens or occasional guests.
We haven't mentioned the garden and pond in great detail, but there's plenty to explore. We can imagine the adventures ahead for curious children exploring the wildlife, watching ducks and dragonflies, and making dens in the wooded area. There's also a lovely fruit orchard by the pond - so we're thinking apple pies and cider!
Homes like this are hard to find, but easy to fall for! Please get in touch with Nick or Teresa of Quarters Estate Agents, Wokingham for more information, or to arrange your viewing - we're looking forward to doing 'the tour'!"
