Rarely does a property come to the open market that has preserved and restored period features appropriate within a listed building, with accommodation befitting modern living. Green Dene Farmhouse is one such property. With origins dating back to the 16th Century with later Victorian additions, the house has undergone a loving process of restoration by the current owners. With many of the original oak timbers and wattle and daub walls preserved, it is clear this is no ordinary property. With the earthy natural colour palette and textures throughout, the aged brick flooring blending beautifully with the oak and exposed brickwork.
Internally the spacious accommodation is perfectly in tune with modern life with ground floor space that includes a large kitchen / breakfast room with part vaulted ceiling, a cosy lounge with inglenook and a further sitting room also providing a study area. Within the later addition to the house a large ground floor room has a utility alongside and could provide a bedroom with en-suite or further reception room. Finally a ground floor shower room completes the living space.
On the first floor the master bedroom suite includes a dressing room within the older section of the house whilst the bedroom and en-suite are in the newer Victorian addition forming a wonderful contrast of architectural styles. The three remaining bedrooms, each of them large enough for double or twin beds, are served by the family bathroom that includes a bath and shower.
A beautifully restored Grade II listed period house with gardens and paddock
The farmhouse is approached through a five bar gate to a gravelled parking area adjacent to which is a substantial double garage with storage above. The garden land beside and behind the garage houses a well with hand pump and has also been granted permission to construct a large timber outbuilding, further details of which are available upon request.
The formal area of garden lies immediately behind the house with the lawns being landscaped by diagonal gravel paths and feature an ornamental pond and mature herbaceous borders and bedding. The garden overlooks the adjoining paddock which is accessed from the parking area via a field gate. Finally the side garden has raised vegetable beds, a greenhouse and lawn to the front aspect carefully screened from the roadway by a mature hedge. In total the plot extends to 0.4 acre and together with the field behind which measures approximately 1.75 acres gives plenty of space for a paddock, cultivation or to just enjoy the view over your own land.
