A Georgian, ironstone under slate five bedroom detached former farmhouse on a plot of approximately 0.33 acres.
The Farm House has over 2,640 sq. ft. of accommodation set over three floors including a cellar on the lower ground floor. On the ground floor there is a full depth hallway, a formal drawing room, a dining room, a dual aspect sitting room, a kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, and a cloakroom. There are five bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor. The property had planning consent for a single storey rear extension under application number S/2007/1098/P which was granted on 1st October 2007. This consent has since lapsed but is an indication of the potential to extend the accommodation subject to renewing the consents.
The property retains classic period features which include a flagstone hallway with matching fanlight windows to the front and rear, sash windows, oak panelling, open fireplaces with cast iron grates and wood surrounds. These features have been successfully combined with contemporary bathrooms and a bespoke fitted kitchen with a four oven oil fired Aga.
The property stands on a plot extending to approximately 0.33 acres. An electric gated entrance leads to a gravelled driveway at the front with estate railing and hedging. There is a box hedged side garden and a lawned rear garden which backs onto fields and has an extensive paved terrace, and borders, with mature trees and shrubs, either side.
