Bedrooms: 3
Built in 1766, this detached Grade II listed farmhouse offers spacious and versatile accommodation, set within grounds of about 5 acres. The property is notable for its 19th Century sash windows and projecting porch and retains a number of character features. Together with its grounds and outbuildings, it provides a fantastic opportunity for a smallholding or family equestrian usage.

The accommodation in its current layout extends to more than 2,100 sq ft and is accessed via a central entrance hall which leads to the two reception rooms at the front of the house. The left-hand space is open plan to an office, while the right-hand sitting room has a wood-burning stove. The entrance hall proceeds down a step to a snug area and onwards to the kitchen/breakfast room, which is appointed with both an electric range oven with gas hob and a traditional Watson oil-fired range. The kitchen has a separate entrance via a rear porch, which leads out to the garden and a w.c. There is also access to a useful cellar.

From the main entrance hallway there are stairs leading up to the first floor, which has a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms and a family bathroom. There are a further two good loft rooms in the attic on the second floor.

Outside

The property is set within attractive and varied grounds in all of about 5 acres and is approached via a wonderful, tree-lined driveway with paddocks on either side to a good-size parking area. Fronting the house there is a charming garden enclosed by iron railings, with pedestrian access via an inset gate. To the side there is an impressive kitchen garden and a hardstanding seating area/stable yard to the rear.

The grounds present an excellent opportunity for the keen equestrian or smallholder, with grass turnout, and outbuildings, which would be ideal for redevelopment (subject to obtaining the necessary consents). The outbuildings currently include, in various states of repair, stores, workshops, garaging and two large barns.
