With its lovely pale stone exterior and traditional windows, this country property looks just like the quintessential Farmhouse of its name.

Inside, however, is a different story as this rural home with its rustic charm and character leaps into the 21st Century with contemporary interiors meeting many people s ideal as the seamless combination of old and new.

The Farmhouse is part of the exclusive development at Lodge Farm, Bear Park, which has seen the old farmstead converted into just six properties renovated to a very high standard, The Farmhouse now offers just under 2,000sq ft of space in a four-bedroom, two-bathroom family home with open plan living.

The highlight of the ground floor is the fabulous open plan kitchen and dining room at the back of the house. This superb space is light and bright thanks to windows to two sides and skylights. It is fitted with dove grey, Shaker-style units with complementary oak worktops and flooring, and has a centre island with Belfast sink and breakfast bar. A large range cooker and space for an American-style fridge freezer and wine cooler complete the dream kitchen, while a practical utility space and downstairs WC are prerequisites in a modern home.

The open plan dining room is ideal for entertaining and is currently being used as a snug where the family can gather day to day, with a wonderful feature in the form of an 1800s George Foster reclaimed stove.

Two similar sized reception rooms are to the front of the house and each comes with sash-style windows and multi-fuel burning stoves in brick inglenooks for cosy nights in.

Upstairs, the dual aspect master bedroom is at the back of the house and has a contemporary en suite shower room. Two other double bedrooms and a single share a luxury bathroom with a freestanding bath.
