EDWARDIAN - Period Homes presents this astonishing country home, set within remarkable landscaped grounds of 3.25 acres and located within easy access of both Kelvedon and Coggeshall. Steeped in local history, this former Barnardos home - once visited by Princess Margaret - has been carefully renovated, restored and enhanced to provide the most magnificent home, offering circa 7,000 sq ft of accommodation over three floors, including a fully utilised and tanked wine cellar.
The home evokes all the charm and character of its era, with high ceilings, carved cornice, a wonderful sweeping staircase, original fireplaces and marble flooring; the list continues, all of which have been preserved and enhanced by the current vendors, now providing a wonderful family home offering every attribute of contemporary living. Set well back from the road behind a mature frontage and walled façade, a sweeping driveway allows the home to slowly reveal itself to you and gives access to the triple garaging. The elegance of the exterior has been subtly enhanced by the landscaped grounds, which surround the entrance. This, however, only hints at what lies inside.
Farm Hill House enjoys one of the most classic and elegant Edwardian interiors we have had the pleasure of experiencing, with a truly magnificent hallway and adjoining garden room with central fireplace. A total of six reception rooms provide a glorious arrangement of living space, in addition to what can only be described as a simply breath-taking kitchen, measuring 50ft x 30ft at its extremes, and incorporating both sitting and dining areas, the latter set within an Orangery, which provides spectacular views over the gardens. If it wasn't already, an Aga and central island ensure this bespoke kitchen is irresistible. Read more
