The House

This is the final flowering of the English farmhouse built in the last years of Victoria’s reign by an aristocrat, Francis Monckton for the new business man farmer. RJ Brown in his book English Farmhouses says it is “the ultimate design house at the vernacular level, providing a degree of comfort not found in earlier houses”.


The house stands 4 square beside Brinsford Lane with a southerly aspect over the 2 acre paddock and fields that form the grounds. It is situated in the green belt, allowing open views. It is constructed from 19th century Staffordshire red brick with a tiled roof and some original slate. It has been completely refurbished with a complete strip out, by local craftsmen. The bricks have been acid cleaned and repointed throughout. It features high ceilings throughout the lower floors of the property with dramatic rooflines in the second floor. The ceilings height is emphasised by the double cornice detailing.


It is now insulated to the highest standards throughout using Actis Hybris insulation, where appropriate, which ensures winter and summer thermal insulation and acoustic insulation. All internal surfaces are brand new using the latest materials, with appropriate insulation. The building has double glazed windows which are all new. They are from Ultimate Rose range by Roseview windows. This range has been developed over 25 years by Roseview to precisely match a classic timber sliding sash, down to the finest details without compromising on energy efficiency, thermal insulation or ease of maintenance. They are the best of breed – the best available at any price – a blend of timeless class and modern convenience. Roof windows are all new manufactured by Velux. They allow natural sunlight to stream into the building whilst preserving insulation levels.


The house benefits from a brand new state of the art heating system, based on proven technologies. It has underfloor heating to the living kitchen and conservatory areas. All other areas are heated using the latest, gas fired, pressurised, unvented hot water and heating system which gives piping hot water on demand together with heating controllable by programmable control switches and local thermostatic radiator valves. The electrical installation is brand new complying with the new IET 18th edition regulations. Generous power outlets are available. All new components carry their individual manufacturer guarantees as shown in the home owners manual, plus the overall 10 year ICW structural warranty and Warm Beautiful Homes customer care policy.


All tiling throughout is Porcelanosa. All carpets are Queens Satin Deluxe by Britannia Carpet Mills. Other flooring is Karndean with bespoke design features. All doors throughout are solid oak finish fire doors – even where not required. All door furniture is premium chrome by Fortessa. There are stone effect window ledges throughout. All electrical accessories are premium bright chrome.


The building has intruder alarms, fire detection, CCTV, Cat 6 wiring and is wired for Sky Q. It has a brand new ICW 10 year structural warranty.
