Think farmhouse and Shrubberies Farm is almost certainly not what will spring instantly to mind – but that is no bad thing.

In fact, Shrubberies Farm, a contemporary farmhouse in the rural hamlet of Mickleby, is full of very, very good things... things sure to appeal to a buyer looking for a modern family home in a peaceful, yet accessible, countryside setting with plenty more besides to offer.

Briefly, the traditional stone-built home comprises a dining room and lounge (which can be made open-plan thanks to double doors between them), utility room, wet room and a double-height open-plan kitchen/informal seating area with a full wall of glass sliding doors at one end and the light and bright kitchen with a range of integrated appliances, contemporary fitted units and a large island perfect for informal dining at the other end. At the heart of this space is a stylish spiral staircase leading upstairs to a galleried landing.

Upstairs are three well-proportioned bedrooms and the family bathroom. A loft, accessed via a pull-down ladder, offers additional storage space or the potential to create a further bedroom.

Externally the farmhouse sits behind a gravelled and lawned front courtyard providing private parking.

Four adjoining outbuildings offer the potential to be converted into cottages or for the creation of a coach house-style property for access to the large rear garden and one-and-a-half acre paddock, subject to obtaining the necessary consents.
