Rookery Farm is a wonderful family home offering superb accommodation and standing in extensive gardens and grounds with paddocks, a swimming pool and tennis court. .

Previously an appealing 19th century former farmhouse, the house is constructed of stone elevations under a tiled roof with dormer windows. A triple height gable stands on the west front with the porch at its base. Extended in the 1980s and again in the last couple of years by the current owners, the house has been considerably improved to create a fantastic family home with spacious reception rooms and plenty of accommodation.

The charming accommodation is well appointed throughout. Architectural details have been enhanced or created by a master craftsman and include a handsome stone bay onto the dining room, a Clive Christian kitchen and beautiful oak joinery throughout including bookcases, window sills and bathroom cabinets.

The porch leads into the light and spacious entrance hall, lying in the heart of the house, linking all principal rooms including a new orangery which was designed and built by the current owners. A breakfast room adjoins the bespoke fitted kitchen, with vaulted ceiling and French windows leading onto a wide south-facing terrace. The dining room occupies a prime position, with large bay window and fine views over the gardens to the south, whilst the sitting room is fitted with an antique pine bookcase with cupboards and is a cosy room in the evening. A large cloakroom has a separate WC.

The considered improvements to the property continue, where the owners have rebuilt and converted a barn. It is linked to the main house by a glass atrium and courtyard hall, creating a new wing with the great hall at its heart, a stunning reception room with double height vaulted ceiling and plenty of light, flowing space. As part of this conversion, they have also created a large utility/boot room, a further family room, home office and two new bedrooms with en suite shower rooms.

The bedroom accommodation on the first and second floors has also been remodelled to create a sumptuous master bedroom suite and enhancing the size of other bedrooms. The work included the relocation of the staircase linking first and second floors, which has been sympathetically completed to a very high standard. In total, there are now six bedroom suites.

Gardens and Grounds

A cobbled entranceway leads to a larch 5 bar automated gate opening to a sweeping gravelled drive which to one side is flanked by a tall beech hedge and to the other side are gracious lawns and a fine water feature. The drive then enters a wonderful enclosed courtyard style area with a turning circle and parking at the front of the house.

The house is surrounded by very fine gardens mainly facing south; our clients have spent much care and investment on the gardens which are both mature and beautifully set out. The orangery opens onto a large flagstone terrace which wraps around the southern façade and leads onto a large area of lawn. Between the orangery and the kitchen is a wide area of terrace, ideal for alfresco dining. A gentle slope leads via a flight of stone steps to the pleasure garden. Formal flagstone walls and edges are planted with clipped box and surround an attractive water feature; this is the centre piece of a garden lighting scheme designed by Bruce Munro.

Adjacent to this formal garden is the swimming pool with an automated solar retractable cover. A hot tub with cedar wood frame is set into the bank and the pool room provides convenient changing facilities and a WC. A children’s garden hut and play area are just beyond the hot tub. There is a hard tennis court to the east. There is a good sized paddock and the possibility of taking over the lease of a further adjoining field should it be required. In addition, two further fields are available to purchase in separate lots. Field A (4.7 acres) lies to the west of the property and field B (3.6 acres) lies to the north.

The owners have recently also created a delightful ‘Mediterranean’ walled garden to the east of the new wing. The beautifully designed space is incredibly peaceful and a wonderful entertaining space.
