Pretty 18th Century detached former farmhouse with extensive open views over the surrounding countryside to wooded hills.
Midgell Farm ceased to be a working farm in 2004 when the present owners purchased the property and when in need of complete restoration. The property is situated in a superb setting at the end of a 0.25 mile approach, surrounded by countryside, over which are extensive open views to wooded hills and across to the 12th Century St Bridget's church.The site of Midgell Farm, or Midgell Court Farm, as once it was known, is mentioned in the Doomsday Book. The house today is essentially 18th Century in character. It has been sympathetically renovated with features appropriate to the period, retained. There are solid oak and flagstone floors, inglenook fireplaces, cast iron grates, vaulted ceilings with exposed timbers, panelled and tongue and groove oak doors with iron latch furniture and window shutters. The rooms have a lovely outlook over countryside and the interior has a warm and friendly atmosphere with comfortable ceiling heights.The sitting and dining rooms are lovely rooms, each with shuttered French windows opening to the garden with open views of the surrounding countryside. The sitting room is an attractive room with fireplace fitted with a stone surround and log burning stove. The dining room has a stone inglenook fireplace with raised open inset fire and bread oven. The study overlooks the entrance drive and rear garden. The family room is beyond the rear hall which gives access to the rear porch, shower room and utility room. The family room has an impressive inglenook fireplace and chimney breast fitted with a log burning stove and bread oven. A mezzanine floor over is accessed via a timber ladder providing an occasional 'fun' bedroom. The kitchen with a four oven Aga is fitted with an excellent range of hand crafted solid wood painted units including a matching substantial central island unit.

Midgell Farm is situated almost at the end of a 0.25 mile approach with open country views on either side. The entrance drive sweeps around the front garden to the side of the house and to a large parking area for several vehicles. The rear garden is laid to lawn and the attractive front garden wraps around the house to the south and east and is enclosed, in part, by a stone wall, park railing and dense Beech hedgerow. The garden is laid to extensive level lawn and the wide open views span almost 180 degrees. Mature trees intersperse the lawn and include a Weeping Ash, Sycamore, Holly and Cherry. There are roses, spring bulbs, a variety of shrubs and recently planted fruit trees including pear and apple. Surrounding the house are flagstone and tarmac pathways and immediately outside the breakfast/garden room is a flagstone area ideal for entertaining with wonderful open views over its lawn.In the parking area adjacent to the drive, is a stone and tiled outbuilding once comprising two stables and a tack room. It provides the potential for a home office, subject to the necessary consents.
