History and Heritage

Home Farm was given Grade II listed status in May 1984 as a property of particular historical and architectural interest. The oldest part dates from the late 17th century with 1696 marked on some bricks. It is of timber frame construction with whitewashed brick infill. The left part of the front was rebuilt in the 19th century in red and white chequer brick which is now also whitewashed. The gabled porch over the front door was added in the 20th century and has a timber frame with a herringbone brick infill.The half hipped tiled roof has recently been repaired by the vendors with the underlying felting completely replaced, the tiles checked and replaced where needed, chimneys checked and new flashing added.

The vendors have extended the property, adding the vaulted Border Oak garden room off the kitchen.
