In addition to the former coach house/garage there is a useful collection of outbuildings forming a small courtyard. The lawned gardens are remarkably private and there is extensive reception parking. Central House – the essence of home.

This historic Grade II Listed former farmhouse has been well maintained and offers superbly proportioned and flexible five bedroom accommodation set within lawned grounds with the potential to become a distinctive and important residence.

The Georgian and Victorian additions to the original 1680s farmhouse emphasise a long standing importance as a home of stature and the retention of period details throughout give testament to former glories.

The twin Victorian bays flank a matching entrance portico which opens to an impressive 25'9 reception hall with Georgian wreathed balustraded staircase and central archway and the two forward facing reception rooms are well balanced and light. Formal family celebrations are catered for in the superb, tall Victorian dining room with Adam style fireplace and full height doors to the garden room. The farmhouse origins are evident in the kitchens and pantry area, which incorporate an 18th Century fireplace, original servants bells, meat hooks and London sink.

To the first floor the main landing serves three double bedrooms and a bathroom whilst the fourth bedroom and second bathroom lead from a half landing. The fifth bedroom has access to the second staircase and there are three useful attic rooms, which could become further accommodation if required.

The former coach house has now become a 25' garage and the groom's room, bottling shed and wash house offer extensive storage and potential work space.

Central House has stood the test of time – it has adapted itself through the ages and it offers an outstanding potential to become an imposing home of character and elegance. It is an integral part of local history – the essence of home.
