Full description

GENERAL REMARKS Lower Farmhouse is a remarkable detached residence which is in a glorious village setting and enjoys some beautiful country views. It has extensive accommodation packed with authentic features which include a massive stone chimney breast, exposed wall and ceiling timbers and traditional stone walling.

Whilst it has served as a comfortable home for many years it is time for a makeover and the chance to bring to the fore many of the original qualities of the building together with the advanced building technologies available now could be a mouth watering opportunity for some. Certainly there is tremendous scope to produce a twenty first century home of immense quality and character in a picturesque village setting.


There are currently six bedrooms arranged over the first and second floors together with a further two attic rooms. An imaginative scheme of refurbishment or renovation would no doubt enhance the living accommodation which already takes advantage of the sunny southerly aspect and the glorious views over open farmland.
The ground floor is even more extensive with the kitchen running through to the sitting room, living room, entrance porch and dining room. The rear ground floor elevation is occupied by a pantry/utility, rear hall, store ('Bee) room, far lobby and studio. There is an en-suite shower room and dressing area to the main bedroom and a family bathroom. There are large inglenook fireplaces to three rooms, one with a wood burning stove and one with a Stanley oil farmhouse range cooker.

Gardens & Outbuildings

The grounds are a very notable feature of the property. The house is approached by a paved and gravelled pathway between two lines of box hedging with a hard landscaped alpine style area to one side and a flagged stone terrace to the other. Steps or a sloped lawn lead to the side former vegetable patch to the rear raised lawns which have a number of productive apple trees.
To the front of the house across the shared private access drive is a hard cored parking area suitable for six to eight cars and a further grassed area with tree edging and views beyond a wicket fence over unspoilt farmland. Outbuildings include some unused stone and G.I. Sheeted storage areas built into the garden, a greenhouse and two timber lean-to storage areas.


We believe that mains water and electricity are connected with a private drainage system. An oil fired central heating system is installed together with an oil Stanley range.

NOTE: None of the services or installations have been tested by the agents.
