The House

Temple Bridge Farm House is an attractive Grade II listed period home dating from circa 1680’s. The property was acquired by our clients in 1996 and has undergone extensive works to not only modernise but to preserve the character and charm of the property.

The afore mentioned character includes mullioned windows, flagstone floors, inglenook fireplace with bred oven, exposed beans and even a coffin hatch, which is now used to move larger items of furniture upstairs and not for the traditional method.

Upon arrival at the property the extensive driveway leads past the front of the house and culminates at the generous parking area and the tractor barn, which contains two stables and a tack room. 

There are two entrances to the property a ‘traditional’ front door and a more conventional rear door which leads in from the parking area to the inner hallway. Once inside the house the ground floor rooms are accessed via the inner hallway. The sitting room which is located at the front of the house features a superb inglenook fireplace with a bread oven, this attractive fireplace currently houses a wood burning stove. The floor is flagstone and there is also a mullion window overlooking the front garden, a spiral staircase leads to the first floor. Next to the sitting room is the more formal drawing room, again with a wood burning stove, mullioned windows and a window seat.

There is also a generous formal dining room, a farmhouse style kitchen breakfast room with an Alpha, this controls the hot water and central heating for the property in conjunction with cooking. Beyond the kitchen is the large utility area and the shower room.

The first floor is accessed via the spiral staircase within the sitting room. There are four bedrooms on the first floor and the family bathroom. A further spiral staircase from the first floor landing leads to the second floor and the stunning master bedroom with its exposed beams, at the far end of the master bedroom is a generous en-suite and access to the vast eaves storage.


The property is approached via the long driveway. This leads to the parking/turning area and the tractor garage. Statements of excellence cannot begin to describe the garden. There is a large area of lawn which leads from the front of the house, perfect for croquet and other lawn sports. There is a dry stone wall which defines the boundary and an assortment of mature and established trees and shrubs. A patio area is accessible from the kitchen, perfect for al-fresco dining and the side garden is used as a vegetable garden, ideal for those looking to live the good life.

At the entrance to the driveway there is a small orchard with a public footpath leading into the adjoining field.

One of the key attractions of the property is the adjoining 2.3 acre paddock. The paddock can be accessed via the driveway or via a gate next to the tractor barn. The paddock is currently used by the owners to graze sheep. In the far corner of the paddock there is a stone pig sty. A public footpath follows the boundary fence of the paddock and leads into the neighbouring field.
