Great Easton 

This charming six-bedroom farmhouse (circa 1870) is set in two acres of established grounds. An imposing entrance hall leads to a generous dining room with double doors on to a dual-aspect living room with open fireplace. The delightful farmhouse-style kitchen leads to a part-vaulted orangery, with stunning views of the grounds.  

The previous stabling and garage are now utilised as ancillary accommodation, with its own access via the rear courtyard. A detached double garage also houses a generous office. Outside, the formal gardens boast established trees, a picturesque duck pond and open vistas. 

Why we love it... There's a sound-proofed cinema room with full Bose speaker and acoustic system.
