Tenure: Freehold

An unlisted, traditional farmhouse with a period barn, outbuildings and about 8 acres situated on the edge of a small, pretty village. Believed to date originally from the 16th century with later additions. EPC: E

The property has retained many period features including inglenook fireplaces, window seats and beamed ceilings. A large extension was added to the rear of the property in 2000 to greatly enlarge the kitchen and provide extra bedrooms. There is a central entrance hall with a staircase rising to the first floor and doors off to the sitting and dining rooms, which both have fireplaces fitted with wood-burning stoves and have beamed ceilings with excellent head room. A further door from the dining room leads to a large study. The entrance hall widens out to the rear hall, which has doors to the garden and to the kitchen/breakfast room. Beyond the kitchen is the boot room with doors leading to the office, cloakroom and the garden. On the first floor is a split landing with doors off to two double bedrooms with en- suite shower rooms, three further double bedrooms, one good-sized single bedroom, family bathroom and a separate shower room.
The house sits back from one side of the road, with a tarmac drive curling around to the rear to parking and a turning circle. To one side is the garden, which is comprised of areas of lawn interspersed with many mature specimen trees. Beyond are the paddocks, two timber garden sheds and a barn. There is a further barn, storage rooms, workshop, free-standing swimming pool and single garage. Beyond are two paddocks, a stream and a small cider apple orchard. In all about 7.9 acres
