Property Description

Folly Farmhouse forms the heart of a working farm consisting of approximately 104 acres, with 90 acres currently being farmed. The property, constructed in the 1950s, offers excellent family accommodation arranged in the main over two floors with a further room on the second floor. The reception hall leads to the principal rooms including the generous drawing room with fireplace and double doors to the garden. The dining room also has doors to outside, a study, country-style kitchen with Aga and utility room to the rear. On the first floor there are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, plus a kitchen/sitting room with loft room above, offering versatility as to how the accommodation could be used.

Two substantial outbuildings offer further potential to develop, the first with planning permission to create a 3 bedroom apartment. The second outbuilding has planning permission to convert the office to a kitchen and to create a 2 bedroom flat above. In addition, there is a further 4 bay barn with machine store to the rear and a room over (which cannot be further developed).

The farmhouse and secondary buildings all enjoy wonderful views of the farm and countryside beyond.

a leisure centre, gastro-pub, doctors, hairdressers and other local stores. Rail links are found at Newbury, Basingstoke or Thatcham, with Waterloo being only a 45-minute direct train
journey from Basingstoke. In terms of education Newbury enjoys an excellent reputation with a number of local schools being particularly highly regarded in addition to the extensive choice of private schools including Cheam, St. Gabriel's, Horris Hill, Bradfield College, Downe House, Elstree and Brockhurst & Marlston. The area is particularly appealing for those requiring walking and riding facilities.

The farmhouse and outbuildings are idyllically situated amidst stunning countryside with rural views all around.
