Tushingham House Farm is a Grade II Listed substantial property, formerly the coach house and stables belonging to the neighbouring Tushingham House, dating circa 1821. The residential element is being offered with the neighbouring American stabling with an area of agricultural land to the west.
The current vendors are retaining the indoor and outdoor arenas thereby continuing the Tushingham Arena, Show and Training Centre.
Tushingham House Farm itself, whilst forming one residential dwelling from a planning perspective, has been subdivided to form an adjoining annex and barn conversion for family members. This property would suit larger families with an equestrian interest as well as those looking for accommodation for family members or to generate supplementary rental/holiday cottage income.
The front door of the principal dwelling opens into a spacious breakfast kitchen fitted with a range of hand-painted cabinets under granite work surfaces with Belfast sink. Appliances include four oven oil fired Aga and an integrated dishwasher and fridge. Adjoining the kitchen is a spacious dining room with slate tile flooring with access to an adjoining utility room with plumbing for laundry appliances.
A central hallway leads to a WC in addition to a superb living space partitioned by a chimney piece housing a double-sided woodburning stove. Beautiful wood parquet flooring runs throughout both rooms with French doors leading to the central courtyard.
To the first floor is a wonderful master bedroom with luxurious en suite bathroom featuring a freestanding clawfoot bath, walk in shower with drench head and integrated vanity sink and WC along with a heated towel radiator. There are two further double bedrooms, both having dressing rooms and en suite shower rooms.
The annex is accessed through the central courtyard opening into a spacious reception hall with slate tile flooring with utility room with WC off. The spacious lounge has twin aspects and could quite easily be opened into the principal dwelling where required.
Across the hallway is a well-proportioned family room with door leading to a most spacious breakfast kitchen fitted with a range of bespoke hand-painted base cabinets with wood block work surfaces incorporating a Belfast sink. Appliances include a freestanding LPG gas cooker and there is space for a large dining table. Oak French doors open to the rear terrace with superb rural views. The principal staircase leads to two double bedrooms, one having a dressing room and a family shower room which is also linked to bedroom 2. A secondary staircase gives access to a superb guest suite with semi vaulted ceiling and exposed joists with a luxurious adjoining bathroom featuring a freestanding clawfoot bath, shower cubicle with thermostatic drench head shower and traditional “Savoy” sanitary ware.
The barn conversion is also entered from the central courtyard opening into a superb dining kitchen with adjoining garden room. The kitchen itself is fitted with a range of bespoke hand-painted cabinets with central island and breakfast bar under granite work surfaces with Belfast sink. Appliances include a four-oven oil fired Aga, and an integral fridge, freezer and dishwasher. This room is particularly noteworthy having a vaulted ceiling with exposed trusses and steelwork opening into a superb garden room with glazed gable end providing wonderful rural views. Off the kitchen is a large utility/boot room with Belfast sink unit, plumbing for laundry appliances and a WC.
At the opposite end of the property is a spacious sitting room with inglenook fireplace housing a “Clearview” woodburning stove. This room formerly served as stabling and still retains the original stable dividers, one of which partitions a spacious study from the lounge.
An attractive and contemporary light oak staircase rises to the first floor giving access to two double bedrooms and a luxurious family bathroom featuring a freestanding oval bath, a walk-in shower with thermostatic drench head and quality white sanitary ware.
Gardens and Grounds
Tushingham House Farm has two entrances off Wobbs Lane. The residential element is entered through a gated entrance onto an extensive gravel driveway which leads to a central courtyard with circular water feature where there is access to a double garage.
To the front of the property is an enclosed lawned garden with well stocked borders with an extensive pattern imprinted concrete terrace enjoying rural views.
To the rear of the property are further formal gardens with an extensive paved terrace and a superb pitched roof all weather covered natural stone terrace. The gardens include a small enclosed fruit orchard, a chicken run and lawned gardens.
The property also benefits from a second access off Wobbs Lane onto an extensive concrete hardstanding providing space for numerous vehicles giving access to the American style steel portal framed stable block through a remote roller shutter door. This building includes 14 Monarch internal stables along with a tack room and a first-floor office. Beyond the stables is a large meeting room with adjoining kitchen, stores and ladies and gents’ toilets. The stable building served by electricity, water and power points. Whilst currently used for equestrian use this building offers a multitude of uses including classic car storage or light industrial use, subject to any necessary planning consents.
The land sits to the west of the formal gardens with a gentle slope running east to west providing natural drainage. The land is predominantly open with one enclosure and an adjoining pig run. The purchaser will be required to install and maintain an approved stockproof fence running along the northern boundary.
