Country life.
Tired children with sun-kissed faces and windswept hair at the end of a fun day.
Muddy boots and grass-stained knees.

Chickens roam freely around the yard, and horses stand patiently, popping their heads out of the stables.

What could be better than allowing your children the freedom to play and explore outdoors And not a games console to be found? Teach them about nature, animals and wildlife as they grow up. A real-life education that city living can not provide.

Anyone with horses knows what it means to have your horses stabled close to home. Those early mornings are made so much easier when they are just a few steps from your door.

Freedom, peace and tranquillity embody Hawkswell Farm. A stark contrast to the usual busy modern life.

With no sounds other than birdsong, the peace is instantly apparent. Listen carefully, and you may catch the distant call of the resident cuckoo.

With a growing family, life is rarely peaceful. The paddock has seen marquees for garden parties and bouncy castles for birthday parties. It has even been made into a makeshift campsite for the children and all of their friends. With no close-by neighbours, they can make as much noise as they like.

And the potential for entertainment doesn't stop with the children. Girly get-togethers in the pool, teenagers coming to hang out. Even Christmas dinner ends up in the swimming pool eventually. Safe in the knowledge that there will be no complaints from the neighbours because you haven't got any.

Our client said, "Living at Hawkswell Farm has been nothing short of idyllic. It's a stark contrast to my career and city life to come down the private road to my secluded home in the countryside. Every evening as I return home from work feels like I have just arrived at my holiday cottage for a relaxing weekend in the country." Sounds perfect, doesn't it?

Hawkswell Farm is certainly not short of space. With a whopping 6 potential bedrooms, this property can accommodate all of the family. There is enough room downstairs, with the sitting room, dining room and breakfast kitchen for all manner of family activities. There is even a utility room and a study. And 2 separate conservatories that look out over the fields at the rear and the yard at the front. So you can choose the view you would like to see. With this much space, you can be sure to find a quiet corner for 5 minutes of peace.

The property comes with a substantial array of additional buildings, including 11 stables, covered garaging and a large hay barn. A planning consultant has given their opinion that the stone barn has potential to be converted to additional residential accommodation under permitted development. There is even an outbuilding containing the heated swimming pool and gym. A fantastic way to host a children's pool party or get a few laps in before work in the morning.

If you keep horses or would like to, there is a menage to accompany the stables and a paddock for grazing. The total grounds amount to approximately 4 acres.

Located between the villages of Carlton and Felmersham, Hawkswell Farm is rural. Still, there are villages close by with shops and facilities. However, a built-up area and the hectic hustle and bustle are absolutely NOT on offer here.
