Description - Formerly a large brick built barn and outbuildings, forming part of Hemmings Farm, and built in about 1900, New Hemmings was converted into a spacious family home in about 2000. The property has light and bright accommodation, which is versatile in arrangement, having a ground floor annexe with sitting room and bedroom with en suite bathroom.
