Property Description**EAST FARM**
Life in the country
The beautiful Grade II listed East Farm is ready and waiting for a family seeking life away from the hustle and bustle.
Offering a perfect combination of rural seclusion, ample private outdoor space and a character property with tasteful interiors, this four-bedroom family home could be a unique contender in the search for your dream home.
Located in the South Yorkshire village of Owston on the outskirts of Doncaster, you will be surrounded by farmland, occupying a property perfect as a postcard picture and still just a short distance away from nearby towns. With double gates to enter and a driveway to both the front and back of this attractive stone dwelling, whichever entrance you choose you’ll arrive ready to sample an enviable slice of country living.
A spacious family home, generous outdoor spaces and a bonus annexe ready to rent or to offer your guests a peaceful retreat.
Heart of the home
It’s easy to see why the current owners spend a large proportion of their time in the impressive living kitchen space.
Occupying over half of the ground floor footprint of the property, these rooms flow together in an open-plan style to accommodate a family living area for cooking, dining, entertaining and relaxing.
People on the hunt for character will love the classic blend of traditional features and modernised touches. Textured stone flag floors and wooden ceiling beams run throughout the space, and the multiple stone mullion windows add to the charm of the period details.
The recently renovated farmhouse kitchen has neutral and contemporary decor – ready for any family to move straight in. The light cupboards are finished with wooden worktops surrounding a double Smeg oven and classic Belfast sink. A utility room off the kitchen is handy additional space for storage and provides a third entrance door to the home from the outside.
Through the arch to the dining lounge and there’s an abundance of space for the family to gather together. The room currently accommodates a large table and sofas at the opposite end surrounding the stone fireplace and log-burning stove. Perfect for relaxing on an evening, or to seat your guests comfortably while hosting and preparing dinner.
You’ll struggle to tear yourself away from this room once you’re settled.
“This is a great family area where we spend a lot of our time.“
Take a seat
Across the hallway you’ll pass the central staircase and a downstairs WC nestled behind, which is modern, clean and simple.
It’ll feel softer underfoot as you pass into the snug which exudes warm and cosy vibes, but is larger than your average second reception room for this type of property.
With 16 square feet of floor space, there’s plenty of room here to relax, without compromising on comfort with a carpeted floor and its own log-burning stove positioned into the stone fireplace.
By now, you’ll come to expect wooden beams as a feature throughout and you won’t be disappointed while the interior stone wall adds characterful charm and interest to the otherwise simplistic decor.
With treble-aspect windows; one occupied by a window seat, this space is drenched with natural daylight, making it the perfect spot to double up as an office should you prefer to have a downstairs workspace like the current vendors.
“It’s lovely in here in the winter when the fire is lit and the Christmas tree is up. This space comes to life then.“
Room with a view
Head upstairs and you’ll be pleased to see the continuation of the feature stone walls and painted grey farmhouse interior doors throughout the property. One of which leads to the master suite situated above the snug.
Similarly to downstairs, the generous floor space allows for a king size bed and bespoke built-in furniture including shaker style wardrobes nestled in one corner. The dual aspect windows help to bring natural light into the space for a fantastic start to the day with views of the surrounding countryside.
As you’d expect, the master comes with its own en-suite which has been beautifully renovated with a clean modern finish. Tongue and groove panelling on the walls and the continued ceiling beams ensure it’s in keeping with the heritage of the house, with updated conveniences including a large vanity unit sink, toilet and large
“It’s really light, bright and spacious.“
All three further bedrooms are generous sizes, ensuring plenty of space for a growing family to evolve. Each room has the floor space for a double bed and freestanding furniture. Each has its own quirks and characteristics yet all decorated tastefully in keeping with the rest of the home.
Bedrooms two and three share a beautiful tiled ‘Jack and Jill’ bathroom with double basins to allow for one each, a freestanding bath tub, concealed cistern toilet and heated towel rail. Older children and guests will instantly feel at home with the luxury of hotel-standard facilities.
The fourth bedroom is certainly no poor relation in the upstairs quarters with an en-suite on offer here too, featuring a large corner bath, toilet and wash basin.
Arguably the most unusual shape, it’s set in the eaves with a partially sloping roof, finished with a skylight and those classic wooden beams of course.
The layout of this space is slimmer and longer than the previous bedrooms so, if a further sleeping area was not required, it could also make a fantastic study which is set away from the hustle and bustle of the main living areas.
The great outdoors
Lovers of the great outdoors and green fingered folk among us will truly be in their element here.
With impressive garden spaces at both the front and rear of the property, you’ll have plenty of space to bask in the sun and enjoy some much-needed fresh air with the countryside surrounding you.
The sizable front lawn is encased with mature borders and the same traditional Yorkshire stone as the property with a recently re-pointed wall. The overall aesthetic of the exterior is immaculate and offers ultimate curb appeal.
The rear garden has a more recreational feel with a separate decking area and Indian stone patio in the centre of the lawn, ideal for outdoor dining and entertaining especially when friends come to visit.
Two beautiful cherry trees sit a perfect distance apart to allow a hammock to drop between them if you’re feeling particularly in need of relaxation.
Perfect paddock space
Equestrian-minded eyes will light up when they arrive here to see the potential that comes with two acres of paddock space.
This would make the perfect opportunity for those looking to bring their hobby home.
The drive to the rear of the house behind double wrought iron gates is wide enough for a horse box to come in and out freely, while a raised concrete area next to the paddock is ready to house well-sized stables.
The current occupiers also own chickens on site and there’s plenty of space for all manner of livestock if you wish to get involved in the small-holding lifestyle.
Area to explore
Nestled in the sleepy countryside village of Owston just six miles north of Doncaster, you’re tucked away from the faster-paced town environments but still have them within easy reach.
Pontefract and Doncaster will likely be your go to towns for shops, amenities as well as pubs and restaurants while a little further afield is the cosmopolitan city of Leeds.

Also hosting weddings, business events and with good-quality food served, this is a great place to take a break and enjoy some time out of the kitchen on evenings
The transport links are fantastic if you need to travel further across the country.
