ORIGINALLY a Georgian farmhouse, Tomlins is one of the oldest houses in the village of Bucklebury and has had only three different owners since the First World War, but it also has an ultra-modern side, making it one of the most unusual properties in the area.
The whole property has been sympathetically extended over the years to create a traditional country house with a modern twist, benefiting from all modern luxuries.
The layout of the house allows for all of the principal reception rooms to have windows to the front and rear of the house, creating light, airy spaces.
The most recent addition is the easterly extension which houses the sitting and dining rooms with large, bi-folding doors to the terrace and a magnificent Gyrofocus hanging fireplace which can pivot to either reception space. The beautiful Smallbone designed kitchen/breakfast room lies to the centre of the house with traditional stone flooring, granite work surfaces, a Butler sink and traditional Aga with brick surround, as well as a pantry to one side.
The family room is situated at the westerly side of the house and provides a more informal reception space with a central log-burning stove.
