Dee Farm has provided a wonderful family home for the owners who have extensively modernised the farm house in recent years. They have used the land for the grazing of cattle and horses with the equestrian use supported by a manège and stabling within a versatile general purpose building. There is easy access to the land from the farmstead which runs to a sweeping bend in the River Dee. Also accessed from the drive is a derelict former cottage. A planning application has been submitted to convert this into ancillary accommodation to the house.
The farmhouse has clearly been altered and extended over the years and is constructed in brick and stone with a slate roof. An oak front door opens into a hall with a storage cupboard. Next to it is a lobby and a downstairs guest suite with a bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom has French doors opening onto the garden. At the heart of the house is a wonderful open plan family room with dining and sitting areas and a green oak gable extending into the garden. It is a beautiful light room with exposed timbers and a tiled floor with underfloor heating supplemented by a smart Scandinavian log burner. The high quality kitchen, which is open to the family room and the sitting room, was made by Tegla and has an excellent range of fitted units, a programmable electric Aga and separate gas hob. The sitting room provides a comfortable space for relaxing or entertaining and there are stairs from it to the first floor. Off the kitchen is a utility/boot room. On the first floor are a further three bedrooms a bathroom and shower room, one en suite to the master bedroom.
The house is set in delightful gardens with a paved terrace, lawns and various shrubs and plants. Beyond is a wild flower meadow with the backdrop of a mixed broadleaf woodland.
Closest to the house is a traditional brick and stone outbuilding, partly on two floors which currently provides useful storage. Beyond is the stable building with six American barn style boxes, two kennels and further storage areas.
The railed manège is situated beside a small orchard.
The land is divided into fields by mature hedges and could easily be subdivided into smaller enclosures should this be required for horses.
The property extends to about 24.61 acres.
