What a superb family get-together house this is, stunningly attractive both inside and out with masses of space, a private hot tub and shared use of an indoor heated swimming pool, gym, tennis court and woodland pathways, all wrapped up in five acres of lovingly-tended grounds. Melody Farm is an utter delight, a total home-from-home with superb decor and furnishings, unlimited Superfast BT Infinity broadband, Sky TV and an awesome Disklavier automated piano (hours of fun for those pretending to be a concert pianist!). There are two sitting-rooms – one beautifully and elegantly furnished and a wonderful spot for grown up gatherings, and the second with a huge television and sofas facing a toasty wood-burner, perfect for teenagers who like some space of their own. The gorgeous bespoke Shaker-style kitchen/dining-room has a duck-egg blue four-oven Aga, granite work surfaces and travertine flooring. There’s a walk-in pantry, a drinks fridge, a microwave built into the kitchen island and a dishwasher, and to make catering for big groups easy, the adjoining utility-room has a massive fridge/freezer, two washing machines and a second dishwasher… you’ll never want to go home! A large conservatory next to the dining-area looks out over manicured lawns to an ornamental lake beyond, with a bubbling hot tub just outside the doors.
