The Farmhouse
A fine example of a Lord Stalbridge farmhouse typical of the period and the locality and exhibiting the intriguing Grosvenor family wheatsheaf crest in one gable. Constructed in 1865 of greenstone elevations with pronounced quoins and stone mullion windows it boasts traditional Victorian proportions with large square principal rooms and tall perpendicular dimensions.

The accommodation comprises a wide entrance hall with flagstone floor, 2 large reception rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room on the ground floor and 8 bedrooms over the first and second floors. Off the rear is a former cheese room with loft above and further stone storerooms and garage which could easily be incorporated into the accommodation (subject to consent). The house and cheese room had new double glazing installed throughout in 2015 and a new roof in 1990. See floor plan for layout and room dimensions.

Traditional Stone Buildings
Arranged around a traditional central courtyard is a stunning range of stone barns offering huge potential for a variety of uses such as holiday lets, studios, games room, stabling and storage amongst others. Infact planning has been obtained for conversion to 3 full residential units should the purchaser wish to explore this avenue. The consent comprises 4 bed and 3 bed single storey units and a 5 bed two storey unit, each with ancillary garaging.
