Full description

Tenure: Freehold


A classic thatched former farmhouse of great character leading into gardens and land with timber studio/workshop and large central pond surrounded by a variety of mature trees. The Grade II listed house and neighbouring house, to which it is attached are reported to date back to the early 16th Century. In the 17th and 18th Centuries the original farmhouse was extended, remodelled and divided creating the current house which had a further addition in far more recent years. A driveway sweeps down to a parking area for several cars bringing easy access to the main entrance. Within the garden a now disused swimming pool and on the edge overlooking the land a studio/workshop together, subject to planning permission, offers the possibility to be creative with ‘Grand Designs’ on a slightly smaller scale.



The house is of traditional stone construction under a thatched roof with the more recent addition of modern construction.
