THE PROPERTY
West Fenwick Farmhouse is a historically significant 13th century superior Bastle house which is set in the midst of the delightful medieval settlement of Fenwick.

It has been the subject of a recent modernisation project which has sought to reveal and enhance the many original features that this property boasts.

It is a stunning grade II listed former farmhouse, which has been beautifully renovated to form a spacious and stylish family home, presented in luxurious and pristine condition. Set in a peaceful rural setting, and with more than 3,500 square feet of accommodation, the property features a number of attractive and sympathetically restored original details, as well as elegant, bespoke modern fittings.

The ground floor has three comfortable reception rooms – the drawing room and sitting room both with Amtico flooring and featuring timber beams overhead, and fireplaces fitted with woodburning stoves. There is also a study and a well-appointed
kitchen including Mele appliances, with the utility/boot room housing an integrated washing machine and washer dryer - accessed from the fabulous car port arch which links to the traditional outbuildings.

The first floor has a luxury principal bedroom with a dressing room and en suite shower room, as well as a two further bedrooms and a drying room. This useful walk in airing cupboard houses the boiler and is fitted with hanging rails and deep slatted shelves for storing/drying/airing.

The first-floor family bathroom has a freestanding bathtub and a walk-in shower, while on the second floor there are a two more double bedrooms.

OUTBUILDINGS
The farmhouse has an adjoining traditional outbuilding, with almost 2,000 square feet of floor space, offering plenty of storage, garages and stabling. There is also significant potential for development here. Planning and listed building consent has been applied for to renovate and extend the current building into another independent dwelling.

OUTSIDE
There are various delightful gardens that benefit this fantastic rural home. The grounds to the south and north of the house, with a gravel driveway lead to a covered parking area in the outbuilding, and the gardens include areas of lawn, gravel terracing, a kitchen garden with raised beds, and paddocks which provide plenty of grazing and amenity space.

The house and grounds benefit from appealing ambient lighting which also serves as a security feature.

There is a well stocked and plentiful orchard including a wide variety of apple, pear, quince, plumb and hazelnut trees. An abundance of wildlife habitats are to be found on and in the appealing gurgling brook which forms much of the western boundaryand in the surrounding wildflower fields and meadow areas.
