Full description

Set behind a majestic private gateway, Smiths Farm lies at the heart of the historical and now exclusive Elmers Green. Believed to date back to the late 17th century, the main house, a former Yeomans farm, is a complex and interesting sandstone building which exudes real charm, warmth and character. Its accommodation comprises briefly of an entrance hall, a farmhouse kitchen, utility room, main parlour lounge, sitting room, conservatory, ground floor WC, four bedrooms with master en suite bathroom and a separate shower room. The property retains many interesting and original features throughout and the history of the building remains delightfully clear. Next to the house is a substantial sandstone barn which carries the date stone 1689, and within the fabulous gardens and grounds is a large lake which is believed to be a flooded quarry and the possible source of the building material for the farm. Smiths Farm is a truly unique property and will only be fully understood when its seen first hand. Step inside and feel your heart miss a beat.
