Full Details

Bowers Farm stands on the edge of the popular small village of Standon Bowers. The property comprises a large family home with mature gardens and approximately three acres of paddocks a yard and two large steel framed buildings. The surrounding countryside is some of the nicest that North Staffordshire has to offer and yet the property is ideally located for access to local and regional amenities and services.

Bowers Farm house adjoins the neighbouring barn conversions and has for many years been lived in as two very comfortably sized homes. The oldest part of the house fronts onto the lane, however the drive now extends through the gardens to the front door which opens into an appealing entrance hall from where there are doors off to an impressive formal drawing room and the dining room. The hall then continues to another very pleasant sitting room which has french doors opening to the garden. The kitchen overlooks the lane and in common with the snug forms part of the original farmhouse. The Kitchen is large enough to accommodate a good sized table and has a quarry tiled floor. A door opens to steps which descend to the cellar which is built into the underlying sandstone. The snug is a very appealing room with part paneled walls and parquet flooring. The utility room/ smaller kitchen and the wetroom are alongside the rear hall from where the back door opens to a paved yard.

The main staircase rises to the first floor galleried landing which is lit by a window overlooking the front of the house and from where there are doors to the master bedroom which has a dual aspect. Across the landing is a very pleasant twin bedded room which has an adjoining ensuite shower room. There are four further bedrooms which are all very comfortably sized and a study which could well be a sixth bedroom. There is a bathroom and a separate shower room.

The gardens are planted with mature shrubs and trees and orientated such that they enjoy a high degree of privacy from the neighbouring properties. Across the lane from the house there are steps up to a woodland garden which was once an orchard.

The gardens currently continue through the fence to the right of driveway into an enclosed area of lawn which is available by separate negotiation, shown hatched on the attached plan.

Beyond the house there is a large area of yard which provides ample parking and two former agricultural buildings which are currently used as workshops and for general storage but have the potential for a variety of uses including stabling. The paddocks are enclosed by a ring fence and include a small area of woodland on the boundary which runs down to the brook. Access to the yards, buildings and paddocks is by way of a drive from the lane.

A public footpath crosses the property between points A and B on the plan.

The vendors have requested that the property be sold with a 10 year overage agreement that requires 10% of the increase in value be paid to them should any part of the property be sold for development.

The property is supplied by mains water and drainage is into a septic tank. Heating and domestic hotwater is provided by LPG. The Windows are double glazed, those on the roadside have been recently installed.
