Description Wallow Farm is a most attractive Grade II Listed detached country farmhouse, set amongst approximately 6.5 acres (sts) of grounds bordering countryside offering splendid views as far as the eye can see.

The property enjoys an idyllic setting in this rural village set along a private no through lane, perfect for family living or those who want for a business opportunity with the grounds and large barn for renovation suitable for an equestrian livery yard or perhaps another business/office use (stpp). It may be advantageous to speak with your local council to determine what business opportunities may be considered or to even seek conversion of the barn itself for either residential of business/office use. In addition, it could be worthwhile determining the council's stance on the barn being converted to a residential dwelling and set in with the land being offered as a separate dwelling - this of course would reduce the given guide price for Wallow Farm, should you decide to sell as two separate properties.
The accommodation briefly comprises: leaded light door to front leading into the sitting room with 'Geraedts' log burning stove and beautifully timbered ceiling, open studwork to the dining room with oak flooring, drawing room with open fire, study with french doors to secluded patio area, cloakroom, laundry room, handmade country kitchen/breakfast room with large central island and brick flooring, rear boot room with stable door to rear garden.
