Rookery Farm is a handsome Regency country house believed to date back to the early 19th century, with a fine façade with mellow brick elevations under a hipped slate roof. The house has a wealth of period features, although it has been recently updated, which include double hung sash windows, open fireplaces and high ceilings. The reception rooms are charming and the kitchen/dining room is a wonderful family space.
Accommodation in total comprises: reception hall, two reception rooms, study, kitchen/conservatory/dining room, cloakroom and cellar downstairs, whilst upstairs are five bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Outside the grounds come to almost five acres, and are extremely private. A York terrace makes an ideal dining space for summer, while the pond provides a focal point with weeping ask trees at either end. The tennis court lies a short distance from the house, while a large post-and-rail paddock lies towards the rear of the house.
The Rookery Farm occupies a rural position with good countryside views on the edge of Wickhambrook, not far from the village of Ousden. Wickhambrook itself offers a primary school and village stores/post office, pub and a sports field as well as a health centre.
The guide price is £935,000. For further information please contact Jackson-Stops & Staff on 01638 662 231 or visit www.jackson-stops.co.uk.
