THE PROPERTY
Mennabroom is a charming and characterful Grade II listed family home dating from the 13th Century and believed to be the oldest inhabited dwelling in the area. Extensive renovations have been undertaken in recent years including re-roofing the farmhouse with reclaimed Delabole slate, installation of oil-fired central heating, custom-built American white oak kitchen furniture and bathroom suites. The accommodation briefly comprises: entrance hall, sitting room and large drawing room with wood burning stoves, dining room, farmhouse kitchen with oil fired Aga and utility boot room. On the first floor master suite with dressing room and en-suite bathroom, 2 further en-suite double bedrooms and a nursery/study. Three 17th Century converted barns provide popular, AA 4 star rated self-catering holiday cottages and a detached studio/office reception with WC and laundry room offers an ideal work-from-home opportunity. A modern barn offers storage and housing for livestock and potential for American Barn style stabling. A particular feature of the property are the beautiful grounds extending in all to approximately 41 acres (16.7 ha), of which approximately 32 acres of pasture land provides grazing for livestock or horses. Running along the valley bottom is an area of deciduous amenity woodland intersected by the River Dewey, providing a natural conservation area and wildlife haven, together with delightful walks.
