Little Iridge Farmhouse is a very special Georgian Grade II listed former farmhouse in Silverhill. With an all around attractive outlook over its own grounds and the surrounding countryside, combined with the peaceful location, this is the setting for a simply delightful and idyllic family home.

Designed along classic lines, this former farmhouse has excellent degrees of balance and proportion. Lofty ceiling heights and good levels of natural light throughout enhance the sense of spaciousness. A number of attractive architectural features include leaded light windows, wide bay windows, oak latch doors, a striking inglenook fireplace and an original servant’s bell. These are complemented by solid oak flooring, neutral carpeting and décor in a range of tasteful tones, creating a comfortable and inviting atmosphere.

The gardens and grounds, in which the farmhouse sits centrally are the perfect setting for the property. There are formal gardens around the house featuring sweeping lawns and lavishly filled beds and borders, encompassed by old stone walls and Yew hedging. There is also a productive working kitchen garden. On the borders are established flowering shrubs and some magnificent specimen trees creating areas of seclusion and privacy.

There is a fenced paddock to the front and simply delightful natural woodland and ponds to the west. The woodland is awash with native plants, including a stunning lengthy primrose and bluebell walk, and the ponds encourage a range of interesting wildlife visitors. This area affords a welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of daily life and an inspiration to discover nature on your doorstep.

The property is approached via a half mile driveway which leads to a carriage sweep in front of the house. From here, stone pathways lead to and around the house from which there are delightful vistas over the gardens. The brick built double garage has power and light connected along with a loft store and utility/store room.

Inside you have a triple aspect drawing room with a striking inglenook fireplace and French doors. There is a library, while the farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with high specification French grey cabinets with a matching island unit, Aga and range cooker . All brought together by the warm terracotta floor tiles.

An inviting master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. There are three further bright and airy double bedrooms, all incorporating fitted wardrobes plus the family bathroom incorporating traditional white suite with complementary neutral tiling.

Surrounded by landscaped gardens and grounds of about 3.5 acres, Little Iridge Farmhouse is in a peaceful rural, yet not isolated position at the end of a long private drive.
