Perry Farm & Stables is a quintessential period farmhouse, Grade II listed, as being of Special Architectural or Historic Interest. Believed to date from 1680, the elevations are a combination of brick with rounded heads, burnt headers and stringcourse beneath a pitched tiled roof with Dutch gable ends. Rear elevations are of colourwashed brick with mellow brick, beneath tiled roofs, including a 'cat slide' roof. Inside, the house has been appreciably improved over the past five years, with particular attention being paid to its period features and yet incorporating modern flair and design.
Inside, there is a fine drawing room with oak boarded floor and brick fireplace with stone hearth, side seats, smoke hood and Bressumer beam. Additional features within this room include sash cord windows with stripped pine shutters and sill to the front and a fine, easy rise staircase in pine with turned and moulded balusters and handrail leading to the first floor. This room sets the tone for the remainder of the house which is equally well presented with further period features including fireplaces, leaded light windows, exposed timbers and full height pitched ceilings with exposed timbers to the two second floor bedrooms. Contemporary features include Chinese slate floors and a kitchen with granite worktops having maple drawers and cupboards below, a teak drainer with inset Butler sink and opening into a stunning triple aspect conservatory / garden room.
On the first floor the principal bedroom suite comprises a double aspect bedroom, a dressing room and large bathroom, having separate access from the ground floor. In addition to this main suite there are two further double bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, whilst the second floor has two beautifully appointed double bedrooms and a shower room.
GROUND AND GARDENS
Close to the house there is a converted former stable block which now provides ancillary accommodation. This comprises; kitchen / dining room with Chinese slate floor and central island, sitting room with double glazed sliding windows out to the main garden, two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
To the side of the swimming pool there is a long rectangular pool room with changing room and workshop, having power and light. This room could easily be converted into further ancillary accommodation, subject to the requisite planning consents being obtained.
Reached from the entrance by a gravel driveway is a pair of single garages with double doors and an adjacent oil storage room.
