5 Bed Detached For Sale
A picturesque, listed farmhouse occupying gardens and paddocks of about 7 acres located in a fine rural position yet within walking distance of the village pub, a highly regarded primary school and bus routes linking with the neighbouring districts. This fine character home retains a wealth of period features including open stone fireplaces, some quarry tiled flooring and exposed oak wall and ceiling timbers, and is presented for sale for the first time in over 70 years. The gardens and grounds are a particular feature with a large level expanse of rolling lawn surrounding the house on all sides interspersed and flanked with a wide variety of mature shrubs and trees, the whole immediately adjoining a meandering stream providing a fine backdrop. Adjacent to the house there is a pretty former forge building currently used as garaging and storage which could be converted to provide self-contained accommodation or be amalgamated into the main house subject to planning. Adjoining this building is stabling and shelter for horses, and with two large enclosed mature paddocks which are accessed off the main driveway via a five bar gate and bound by mature trees and shrubs, this provides ideal equestrian facilities. The total plot extends to some 7 acres. The versatile and generously proportioned accommodation requires some updating and modernisation and extends to 3,483 sq. ft. comprising in brief on the ground floor a gabled entrance, a reception hall with open fireplace, a grand double aspect drawing room, a large family room with handsome inglenook fireplace, a snug, kitchen/breakfast room, a separate dining room and a cloakroom. The first floor provides five generous sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. Outside, the property is approached via private gravel driveway which leads to a large parking area providing parking for a number of vehicles. The grounds surround the house on all sides and are a particular feature.
