The Property: This handsome former farmhouse is Grade 11 listed and situated within a conservation area. Part of the building dates from the 16th century- a date stone 1585 is visible to the rear. A ledger secreted in the wall of the inglenook fireplace by a tenant in the late 18th century(which has recently come to light) testifies to the fact that it was extensively remodelled at that time, when the bay windows were added. The present owners successfully ran the house as a Bed & Breakfast until recently.

 The accommodation which is set over three floors displays many original features including beamed ceilings, an inglenook fireplace and latched plank doors. The principal rooms are dual aspect each enjoying a view over the garden to the south.

The front door leads into the hall where there is a staircase and further door to the rear. The sitting room has a feature stone fire place and French doors facing south and the dining room has an inglenook fireplace with large wood burning stove as a focalpoint. A door leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room which is a comfortable and sociable space for cooking, dining and entertaining. There is a range of hand crafted reclaimed pine units and an Aga is set into a chimney atone end with a walk in pantry set to the side. A door leads from the kitchen to the utility with a door to the cloakroom/WC and access to the rear.

The first floor is accessed via stairs from the hall. The landing is light with windows to the south overlooking the garden leading to a double bedroom with en suite bathroom. There are two further generous sized bedrooms with a shower room between them. Stairs lead from the landing to the second floor where there are two further double attic bedrooms.

Fairlands faces onto Church Street from which there is a driveway leading to a large level parking area. This has the benefit of Planning Permission for the erection of a double garage. Steps lead down to a generous lawn area surrounded by borders, incorporating a Magnolia, Medlar and mature Walnut tree. Other features include a small pond, well and pergola. An arbour walk leads southwards past the orchard to a sunken terrace with grape vines and views over the neighbouring paddock to the open countryside beyond.
