Jessamine Farm is an extremely attractive and spacious detached family home (circa 4,000 sq ft) in the village of Mark, with rural views and benefitting from grounds of approximately two acres.
It has a Georgian appearance to the front aspect which blends into a more cottage style at the rear. The house sits to the front of its grounds with a driveway to the side which leads to the modern double garage at the rear. The house has been lovingly refurbished and sympathetically extended by its present owners during their long and happy ownership including replacement sash windows to most rooms, but it still retains many period features including high ceilings, coving and fireplaces.
At ground floor the main entrance leads to the two almost equal sized reception rooms to the front, the drawing room and the dining room, and also has access to the spacious sitting room and study further back. These four rooms all have high ceilings and sash windows, in keeping with the period. Beyond this is the rear hall which leads to the family areas of kitchen/ breakfast room, utility room, shower room and games room. These rooms are less formal, yet still offer space in abundance. The kitchen benefits from a vintage Robins Egg blue Rayburn, the feature of the room, and a walk-in pantry. The rear of the ground floor, comprising rear hall, ground floor shower room and large games room, could easily be converted to provide self-contained living accommodation for a dependent relative, is required.
The first floor comprises a large landing, equally spacious bedrooms (six in total), plus a large walk through Book Room/Sitting Room with a useful second staircase returning to the ground floor. Additionally there is a good size family bathroom and a large ensuite bathroom.
Outside, the house is accessed via the gravel drive with plenty of parking. The gardens are set to the rear, with the rear boundary of the property having a westerly view over the surrounding countryside. With literally dozens of trees on the land, many grown from seedling by the present owners, the air quality must be excellent! The land is flat and easily accessible by foot, so could easily be used for grazing should potential purchasers be interested in keeping animals, etc.
