Tenpenny House is a beautiful house with an 1876 Edwardian Facade with the original house reaching as far back as 17/18c.    Fully rewired in 2016 the house has been upgraded with a new large Oil and water tank, plumbing to current standards and all major functions of the house up to date.  The House runs it's own septic tank, the system  is up to standard with a new soak away refurbishment back in 2018.  The original 21ft pond built in the 1920's still stands in full glory and is a sight to see.   A security system wired to the emergency services with cameras surrounding the house and gates.


Leading directly from the Hall, the Living room is to your right with a large family log burner, original  large sash windows and trophy cabinet.  A wonderful cosy room on those winter nights with the log burners keeping more than the room warm.  Another smaller room leading off from the living room with multiple use, either an office, storage facility or cloakroom.   To your left of the hall is double spaced reception/dining room.   An original fireplace with a combination of original sash windows and Crittall windows from the 1920's with double doors opening out into the Orangery.  Original floorboards with Oil skirting heating, truly magnificent rooms for entertaining all year round with the added bonus of the orangery where everyone loves to mingle/relax in all seasons.  There is also an additional side door leading out into the log storage area and access to the garden.

A large inner hall leading to the Dining room, Orangery, Hall and Living room, not forgetting access to the downstairs WC and Bedroom Nine/Snug room/Office/Hobby room.


A unique spaced kitchen with the original larder and creamery and additional utility room.  The Victorian creamery with grey slate mantle , original tiling, doors and mesh windows.   The wonderful Oil fuelled Aga was new to Tenpenny post war and has been fully reconditioned  by the current owners and in full use.  A well equipped kitchen with wooden beams and the original front/back door still hanging with all original features and beams.   Base cupboards in abundance and plenty of storage for the enthusiastic cook.   A large separate laundry room outside with heating is perfect to keep laundry away from the house, to have it's own space has been a godsend to the present owners.
