Description - Adscombe Farmhouse is a substantial detached house with an adjoining 2 bedroom cottage. It has been in the ownership of the current family since 1951 and has in the past been used as a productive stock farm. The property is now in need of modernisation. There is more land and buildings available by separate negotiations.

Accommodation - The main accommodation is approached via an attractive fretwork porch into an entrance hall where the main accommodation is accessed. The drawing room is a large, light room with an open brick fireplace and dual aspect windows overlooking the land. The farmhouse kitchen has a Rayburn, a beamed ceiling and ample dining space. Off of the kitchen is the utility room, which has access to outside and also leads to the cloakroom. The dining room is dual aspect and has access from the kitchen and the hall. The hall stairs lead to the first floor where there are four bedrooms with Victorian fireplaces and a family shower room. There are wonderful views out over the surrounding paddocks from this floor. Two separate staircases lead up to three further rooms on the second floor, two of which are currently used as bedrooms and one of which is more suitable as a store room.

The cottage adjoins the main house on both the ground and first floors and interconnecting doors mean that if required the cottage could be incorporated back into the main accommodation. Approached via its own separate cobbled entrance porch, the ground floor of the cottage comprises a large utility room, a kitchen/breakfast room with a four oven Aga and a sitting room. The stairs then lead up to two double bedrooms on the first floor, both with an en-suite bath and shower room.

The land runs mostly to the east and south of the house and extends to approximately 8.5 Acres.

There is more land and buildings available by separate negotiations.
