Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A fine listed Elizabethan timber framed farmhouse with excellent outbuildings and annexe with further land available by separate negotiation

Originally a Hall House built in the mid-16th Century and subsequently extended in the late 16th Century to form an L-shaped plan, Manor Farm is an imposing timber framed farmhouse of plastered elevations with fine pargetting under a plain tiled roof. The house is listed Grade II as being of architectural and historical importance.

The accommodation is spacious with light rooms radiating over three storeys from a central reception hall at the heart of the house. The design and layout offers a good deal of adaptability in their use making it ideal for both entertaining and family living. The rooms are generally well presented; however, many of the rooms would now benefit from redecoration and the kitchen and bathrooms re-fitted. The house also lends itself to alteration and, perhaps, extension around the kitchen (subject to any necessary consents).

Adjacent to the house, standing to the South, are an excellent range of useful outbuildings. Fronting onto the drive, and detached from the main house, is a delightful 2 bedroom annexe with accommodation on the ground floor. Behind are a good range of buildings providing plenty of storage space for a variety of uses and beyond is a recently created pool room, fronting onto the swimming pool, offering changing and entertaining facilities (NB the interior fittings are incomplete, allowing the incoming purchaser to finish it to their requirements).

Manor Farm stands in mature grounds extending to 2.6 acres offering a high degree of privacy with belts of light woodland and mature screening offering protection. Surrounding the house are established and well planted gardens with a South and East facing terrace abutting the rear and a mature pond to the North. Within the grounds, again well protected, is a swimming pool with its attendant facilities surrounded by a terrace.

If required, there is the opportunity to purchase more land of up to 8.35 acres, in 2 parcels, abutting the existing land and the other side of the road.

Mains water and electricity; private drainage; oil fired central heating.
