Deepdale Farm is the product of an imaginative seven year project driven by twin philosophy's of modernisation and conservation. Two contradicting ideals successfully realised in a property which is as versatile as a new build but with great character, highly energy efficient and has the scope to run as either one spacious family home providing almost 4,000 ft2 of accommodation or as two separate dwellings, ideal to realise an income from.
The property is set on an elevated position within Dalby Forest and situated with an acre of private grounds and enjoys a glorious outlook, southwards over the forestry. Originally a traditional double fronted stone farmhouse with a range of outbuildings radiating out to both sides, Deepdale Farm has been completely renovated and what was an adjoining barn has been incorporated into the main house through an imaginative and ambitious redesign.
The Barn's traditional stone construction is enhanced by the addition of a three storey extension, fully glazed to three sides, which perfectly frames the superb surrounding landscape and gives an interesting juxtaposition to the traditional stone aesthetic. Serviced by a lift to all floors the property has been carefully designed for modern living with excellent broadband speeds, full double glazing within hardwearing aluminium frames, a heat recovery system which makes for an efficient and affordable house to run and excellent levels of insulation throughout. The property has been fully reroofed, and has had both the electrics, plumbing and central heating completely renewed along with high specification fitting and finishes throughout.
The accommodation comprises to the Farmhouse: sitting room and dining room with wood burning stove and travertine tiled floors. Rear hall, breakfast kitchen, ground floor shower room and an additional cloakroom. Upstairs are two double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room.
Joining the house to the barn is the double height entrance hall, with exposed original stone-work and a vaulted ceiling. To the ground floor is an open plan kitchen with dining area and separate living area. The kitchen is fitted with a stylish range of contemporary units with granite worktops and integrated appliances including NEFF slide and hide double oven. To the far south facing end is the garden room which has bifold doors opening out onto the stone flagged terrace. To the First Floor is a large master bedroom with en-suite and adjoining the glazed extension to provide a dressing room or study and from its elevated position captures wonderful far reaching views. There are two further double bedrooms and the main house bathroom.
A large undercroft parking area provides a generous amount of garaging and storage and houses the vestibule for the lift which gives access onto the ground and first floors.
To the east gable end is a further range of adjoining outbuildings, which provides useful storage but could have further development potential, subject to obtaining all necessary consents and planning permissions.
Deepdale Farm has an idyllic position on the fringes of Dalby Forest and sits in approximately an acre of garden and grounds. The garden and grounds offer something for every purchaser. From the ground floor doors open out onto an elevated stone flagged terrace which in turn gives way to an attractive flower garden and level lawn. To the rear lies a productive vegetable garden with greenhouse - there is great scope to further develop the vegetable garden and would be ideal for those buyers looking to live more sustainably. To the front is a broad grassy area which gently slopes away to a wild garden area. The area is a haven for wild life with a wide array of birds, flora and fauna and superb walking trails literally from the front door.
