Charming farmhouse overlooking farmland
Dating back over 300 years in the main, this unique Victorian style three storey farmhouse hosts a wealth of charm and character. The versatile accommodation includes, on the ground floor, a welcoming entrance hall which leads through to the drawing room with exposed beams and inglenook fireplace. There is a separate dining room and a study. The kitchen, with Aga, leads through to the rear porch. Completing the ground floor is a useful utility room and two cloakrooms. On the first floor is the master bedroom with en suite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms on this floor, served by the family bathroom. On the second floor, currently used as a self-contained annexe, is a bedroom, sitting room, kitchen/dining room, shower room and boxrooms. The property is approached over a sweeping driveway, with ample parking. Within the grounds is a barn, comprising a central open barn with store to one side and an additional store to the other. The barn provides ideal potential for conversion into secondary accommodation, home office, games room, etc, subject to obtaining the necessary consents. The mature gardens and grounds are most delightful and are partly screened by hedging. They include an area of level lawn interspersed with flower and shrub beds. There is a wonderful peaceful wildlife garden, which provides a haven for nature. Within the garden is also a well and a greenhouse.
