Country family house with a twist


Standing proudly in a wooded position within Bucklebury, Tomlins is a Georgian farmhouse that has been immaculately extended to create a magnificent blend of period features with modern luxuries.

The original part of the house features exposed ceilings timbers, a cosy sitting room with a wood burning stove and central kitchen/breakfast room with an Aga, Butler sink and central island.

The modern extension lies beyond the reception hall with a sitting room and formal dining room, combined with a contemporary Gyrofocus hanging fireplace and two sets of bi-folding doors which open onto the terrace. The principal reception rooms all look out over the gardens and these doors allow the inside and outside space to flow seamlessly with house and gardens as one. The generous stone terrace provides two dining areas from which to relax and enjoy the outside space.

The garden is mainly laid to lawn with an orchard and grass tennis court to the far boundary. There is also a smart vegetable garden and greenhouse to one side of the barn, and manicured hedging borders the property which then looks out over the surrounding countryside.

The first floor offers five bedrooms (two en-suite) and a family bathroom. The master suite sits over the modern extension with a similar stylish feel. Bi-folding doors open to a glass balustrade with wonderful views over the gardens and beyond. The room benefits from high windows with electric blinds, solid oak flooring and fitted wardrobes, and a stylish en-suite with a separate bath and walk-in shower. Every aspect of the property has been carefully thought through and beautifully designed to offer a wonderful lifestyle combining the classic period charm of the farmhouse with a more modern twist that blends perfectly with the tailored gardens.

Tomlins is offered for sale through Strutt & Parker at a guide price of £1,600,000. For more details, call 0118 984 5757 or 01635 521707.
