Home Year Build: 2013
Warmstall House is a large detached former farmhouse with early medieval origins. The current owners have undertaken a comprehensive and sympathetic renovation, which has unearthed features such as the inglenook fireplace in the kitchen, whilst updating the property to a high standard. Today the property is beautifully presented and its south-facing position gives it a light and airy feeling throughout. There are many original architectural features such as stone flagged floors, plank and muntin oak panelling, fireplaces, beams and several stone mullion windows. Built of local stone under a slate roof, Warmstall House has accommodation on two floors with additional accommodation within the roof space. The central reception hall is well-lit by natural light and has an impressive blue Lias flagstone floor and oak staircase rising to the galleried landing on the first floor. On one side is the sitting room, which has an antique pitch pine floor, stone fireplace, chequer-board ceiling beams and windows on three sides including bi-fold doors opening onto the terrace with a lovely view across the garden. Off it is the family room that also has windows on two sides, a wood-burning stove and fitted oak bookshelves. Off the other side of the hall are the kitchen/breakfast room and adjacent snug, which both have stone floors. The kitchen also has a view of the surrounding countryside and is fitted with bespoke timber units, granite work surfaces, Miele/Bosch electrical appliances and 4-oven AGA. On the first floor all the bedrooms have far-reaching countryside views and comprise the principal bedroom with en suite bathroom and dressing room, generous guest bedroom with en suite shower room, two double bedrooms and family bathroom. In the attic the available space has been used to best effect to provide a further double bedroom, yoga space and copious under-eaves storage.
Warmstall House is approached by a 150-yard tarmac drive to a parking area with space for 6+ cars. To the side is a three-bay garage with detailed planning consent for a replacement garage block incorporating a first-floor annexe. The garden extends out on three sides of the house, with the majority at the front where a paved terrace gives way to a gently sloping lawn leading to an apple orchard. On one side of the terrace is a timber-clad and super-insulated home office/gym incorporating two storage rooms. Water and drainage are laid to the office providing further utility if required. Behind the house is a lawn studded with trees with an area of decking with a lovely view out over the surrounding landscape. Adjacent is a small kitchen garden and beyond that is a stable block and concrete apron incorporating three pony loose boxes, tack room and machinery/feed store. Below the concrete apron are a mixed orchard and a paddock of about 1.5 acres bordered on one side by the nascent River Winniford. In all about 2.46 acres (1 hectare). The adjacent 2-acre field has been rented for many years potentially providing additional pasture if required.
