Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Church Farmhouse is an exceptional Grade II listed
detached farmhouse in an idyllic setting adjoining the Church and surrounded by farmland. It offers ideal family accommodation set in about 2.17 acres, together with traditional and versatile outbuildings. Believed to date from around 1480, this fully restored property has fine period features throughout including a honey coloured timber frame, impressive fireplaces including a massive
inglenook in the drawing room, some original brick floors and floorboards as well as some leaded windows with 2 oriel windows to the rear elevation. The beautifully presented interior incorporates a recently extended kitchen/breakfast/family room with an Aga, a stunning drawing room with a particularly high ceiling, dining room with open studwork, snug/study, boot room, cloakroom and a wonderful reception hall with the original front door and key. On the first floor, the charming landing area gives access to the 4 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. A further staircase leads to the loft space which has excellent potential (stp) to provide further bedrooms and a bathroom. Houses of such
exceptional charm and character in such a beautiful setting are rare and viewing is highly recommended.


The grounds are very well maintained and extend to about 2.17 acres incorporating a formal garden area, meadow/paddock and a natural pond. The formal garden area is situated to the rear of the house and adjoins the Churchyard with the Church providing a wonderful backdrop. This incorporates a central lawn with shaped flowering and herbaceous borders as well as a variety of specimen shrubs. In addition there is a paved terrace and pergola providing an ideal area for alfresco dining. A gravelled parking courtyard
gives access via a 5-bar gate to the former farmyard area that now comprises maintained and useful outbuildings. Another 5-bar gate opens onto a meadow/paddock with a large natural pond and mature trees including a willow tree.


Immediately adjacent to the house is a brick and pantile range incorporating a useful garden store as well as a utilities house with plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. There is also a brick and pantile former granary which has been converted to garaging on the ground floor with a staircase to the first floor which could be used as a games room or home office. There is also a traditional timber framed
barn, brick and pantile former milking parlour, timber former chicken house 50' x 27'7" (15'3 x 8'4m) and an open-sided Dutch barn 75'6" x 18'5" (23 x 5.6m).
