Here is a rare opportunity to acquire a 1687 Grade 2 ‘Queen Anne’ style Farm House in a delightful mature garden of around half an acre. This property would be ideal for someone who values easy parking and vehicular access. I ran a design business here for over twenty years and clients could easily locate the property, which lies close to the centre of Farnham Common. The property is within a five minutes walk of the local shops, post office, medical centre and the beautiful 500 acre Burnham Beeches. I am given to understand that the original Mead Farm encompassed 380 acres and the boundary reached Burnham Beeches.
The house retains many original features including the old working well, and many of the original doors and brass locks. The stairs have the original interesting spindles and handrails. The sash windows are still in place and boast some of the original glass. In spite of its age, the house works as a delightful family home.
Mead Farm is well located for good transport links M4 AND M40 ( 3 miles) and the M25, (7 miles ). British Rail from Gerrards Cross or Beaconsfield serves Marylebone, whereas Slough station (4 miles) given the right train, travelling to Paddington is possible in 12 minutes. Furthermore, Crossrail will be available from Burnham, (3 miles distant).
The distinct advantage of this Grade 2 property is its separate barn. The barn is currently used as a studio and office but could be converted to a separate dwelling subject to planning consent.
The house and gardens have been fastidiously maintained to provide a comfortable and beautiful home. We regularly open our garden to the public to raise funds for local charities. There are two sheds and a high quality oak, Heritage Garden room. The garden as well has a large fishpond and a single garage.
Should you be looking to run a small business and want ultra fast broadband, excellent communications with the benefit of a charming house and garden, Mead Farm will take some beating!
