Full description

An absolutely enchanting period farm house with origins in the 15th century with later 17th and 18th century additions. This hidden gem is surely one of the most original and sympathetically restored examples of period building in the county. The current owner has spent a huge amount of time lovingly restoring the house using traditional methods and materials also in the process uncovering many hidden features. The house stands in over two acres of gardens paddock and a stream and is a haven for all manner of wildlife including even a kingfisher which I have to say made my day. Step inside this grade II listed masterpiece and be transported to another era. The exposed beams have that honey coloured hue that comes with age and cannot be replicated. There are stunning original doors and many leaded light windows in original frames. The layout is typical farmhouse with a large flagstoned kitchen and former dairy adjacent. There are four reception rooms each with their own charm and upstairs the principal bedroom has a huge en-suite bathroom with a lovely claw foot bathtub and there are four further double bedrooms. We love the various levels and quirky character. The property is approached by a long gravel driveway leading to a large parking area. A notable feature of the grounds is the profusion of specimen trees including a magnificent willow. There are two bridges over the former moat one of which connects the dining terrace to the garden. The terrace is a fine place from which to contemplate the gardens and to enjoy al-fresco dining.
