Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Located on the edge of a hamlet with lovely countryside beyond, this sizeable former farmhouse sits in a plot of just over a third of an acre and offers substantial character accommodation.

The Property
With plenty of character features remaining, this former farmhouse is the perfect purchase for buyers needing a substantial family size home or for someone in need of a spacious house to enjoy their hobbies. The ground floor living space is particularly impressive and enjoys a practical layout throughout a multitude of useful rooms and good storage space.

On the ground floor a storm porch opens into a traditional entrance hall with stairs leading to the first floor and steps down into a generous but cosy sitting room. A window seat to the front, like all the principle rooms, enjoys a southerly aspect and a wood-burner is set within a stone fireplace. Double doors open into the garden room beyond, linking the main reception rooms to the garden in the warmer months. From the sitting room a further lobby leads you through to a formal dining room. This would equally work as a great family room or play room at the western end of the house and has a pretty stove set in a stone fireplace and fitted shelving and storage to the fireplace alcove.

To the other side of the entrance hall a door opens to the Breakfast Room with flagstone floor. This is a lovely day to day living space, the sort of traditional farmhouse room which can take a table and multitude of comfy chairs should you wish. The focal point here is the AGA which is oil fired and is used for both cooking and hot water provision. There is also a useful storage cupboard to one corner and dual aspect windows. This leads into a fitted kitchen at the rear of the house with cream shaker style units and a practical tiled floor. There’s space for a range cooker and a stainless-steel cooker hood over. From the kitchen a door leads through to a Utility Area with butler sink and plumbing for two washing machines / appliances. There’s also a handy built-in larder cupboard. To one side is a separate downstairs WC. A door from the kitchen opens into a separate study / office at the rear overlooking the garden. Likewise, you can enter the garden from the kitchen via a rear hall and conservatory / porch.

A further cottage style timber door leads down into the Garden Room with open vaulted ceiling and quarry tiled floor, extending across the back of the house and opening onto the garden. At the end of the Garden Room is a separate walk-in Store Room / Pantry with flagstone floor and this has ample room for chest freezers etc. It also houses a wall mounted gas boiler which provides central heating.

On the first floor the landing has a high-level window allowing light to flood down the stairwell. There is access to the loft space via a hatch. The four bedrooms are all a lovely size and three have lovely ornate period fireplaces. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room with double shower, wash hand basin and WC. All bedrooms enjoy a southerly aspect to the front. The family bathroom is fitted with white suite including panelled bath with shower handset and additional electric shower, as well as WC and wash hand basin. The airing cupboard is located in one of the double bedrooms and houses the hot water cylinder with electric immersion for hot water provision.

There is off road parking to the front of the house, accessed via timber gates. This also provides access to the garage, beyond which is a further workshop / store area. The oil storage tank is also located to this side of the property. A large patio area extends across the rear of the house and is accessed from the Conservatory and Garden Room. This leads onto a generous lawned garden with mature apple trees, roses and flower beds all overlooking the countryside beyond.

The property is located in a designated Conservation Area
