Haydon House is a fascinating Grade II listed period property; originally a farmhouse built in 1666 and is thought to be one of the oldest houses in the village. The house retains much of its original charm and character as one would expect from a house of its age including an impressive inglenook fireplace, beamed ceilings, heavy panelled doors, elaborate ceiling cornicing, decorative plaster mouldings including a coat of arms above one of the fire places in the bedroom. On the second floor, reached from a door and turning staircase, is an original monks room with window and original pew still in place that would make a 5th bedroom/attic room.
The house has an imposing appearance with colour washed rendered elevations under a slate roof, part of which has recently been replaced within the last three years. A heavy timber door leads though to a cross passage hallway with panelled doors on either side leading to the dining room and living room. The living room has an open fireplace, door to the second staircase and door leading through to the study, which overlooks the rear garden with a door leading out onto the courtyard. The dining room has an impressive inglenook fireplace, door to the main staircase and door leading though to the family room. The family room has leaded glazed window and redundant door opening to the front of the house. The kitchen is of a good size and is fitted with a range of matching units and appliances with window overlooking the rear garden and door opening out onto the courtyard. There is also a downstairs cloakroom with WC and washbasin. On the first floor the landing splits to provides access to two of the bedrooms and to the landing to the back of the house which connects to a second staircase, bathroom and two further bedrooms, one with walk in shower suite.
Outside a pedestrian gate leads to the front garden with central pathway to the front door. The gardens are laid to lawn with mature conifer hedging providing a good degree of privacy with gate to one side that opens into the parking/yard area. There is good vehicular access from wide metal gates that lead onto a substantial parking area, detached double garage, and to the DETACHED TWO STOREY BARN, which currently has planning permission to convert to a 3-bedroom annexe with double garage. A gate from the yard also gives access to the rear courtyard, which in turn opens out onto the rear garden. The rear garden is delightful, walled in part and shaded in the centre by a beautiful weeping willow tree. The garden is predominantly laid to lawn and is surrounded by planted herbaceous borders with a patio and barbeque area. To the front is a productive vegetable garden with fruit trees, greenhouse and timber shed to one side. The garden enjoys a good degree of privacy and the whole plot extends to about acre and includes a productive vegetable area with fruit trees.
