Description - Wresden Farm is a fascinating property with many different attributes. It comprises a 17th century Grade II* listed house and a superb early 18th century barn, set in over 6 acres in which there are a series of attractive mill ponds as well as paddocks and mixed woodland - a naturalist's paradise. The house has an elevated position and a southerly aspect with dramatic rural views. It is attached to a period cottage in separate ownership, which is offset from it.
Records show the original mill as dating back to the the 17th century - there is a date stone IEE 1687 on the two storey front porch of the house. Inside, the building has a real sense of history with many period features, including a magnificent Jacobean bed, believed to be part of the original structure and reputably, a concealed Priest's Hole. As such, the whole property represents the most exciting project, which would now reward investment, to make the most of all it offers. The house currently has two good reception rooms and a well proportioned kitchen, three bedrooms, a bathroom other ancillary accommodation as well as a self-contained one bedroom flat. There are the remains of additional buildings associated with the mill workings (in varying states of repair), the wonderful old barn and various other sheds and outbuildings. There is a main paddock, a series of ponds, an old orchard and mixed woodland, flanking the drive.

General Information - Mains electricity, shared private water supply and drainage. Central heating in the house by a multi fuel Rayburn.
