Letcombe Bowers Farm is an impressive and substantial period house sitting in the most wonderful position. The house offers extensive and very flexible living and can easily be sub-divided to provide separate accommodation. The main house offers excellent south facing reception space with working fireplaces radiating out from and impressive hallway with steps down to the cellar and wooden turned staircase to the first floor. From the kitchen/breakfast room there is access to the scullery, store rooms and a further sitting room, bedroom, shower room and kitchen.

On the first floor there is an impressive master bedroom affording beautiful views over the countryside and en suite bathroom. There are a total of 9 further bedrooms, 1 bathroom and 1 shower room. There is a useful 2nd staircase serving the East wing of the house.


The property is approached via a mile long drive through farmland and sweeps round in to a central parking area and turning circle. There are a range of outbuildings within the grounds to include a tractor barn, substantial lambing barn and an impressive timber framed barn with planning permission to convert for ancillary use to the main house. The garden has a very open south aspect, with stunning views over adjoining farmland and countryside beyond. The rest of the land is made up of predominately grassland and a small copse. There are extensive opportunities for redevelopment of the site to include a substantial replacement dwelling including linking to the timber framed barn or the conversion of the house and outbuildings to provide a multiple house scheme.
