A lovely 84 acre residential farm with Grade II listed five bedroom farmhouse and extensive traditional and modern farm buildings.


Barfrestone Court Farm is a predominantly ring-fenced farm which offers potential purchasers a wonderful opportunity to acquire a compact and well-equipped farm with a listed five bedroom house at the centre, together with an extensive and diverse range of traditional and modern farm buildings and arable and pastureland in excess of 78 acres.

Barfrestone Court Farmhouse is an attractive Grade II Listed farmhouse the original part of which dates from the early 18th century and extended in the mid 18th century. The ground floor comprises an entrance hall, two formal reception rooms, both with open fireplaces, a kitchen/breakfast room, office, shower room, utility room and store room having a traditional fireplace and old bread oven. On the first floor are five double bedrooms served by two bathrooms. There were previously two further attic bedrooms, but the original stairs to the attic have been removed, these could be reinstated, subject to any necessary planning consents.

The main house benefits from its own separate drive with the expansive lawns lying to the front and extending around to the side of the house, the established gardens continue and to the rear are several paddocks which are currently used for the grazing.

Beyond the gardens and paddocks lies a large courtyard providing extensive parking and with a traditional collection of period barns and farm buildings, the impressive main barn having used as an excellent function room space. Located to the south east of these are the working agricultural farm buildings, which again benefit from separate vehicular access and include a roundhouse livestock building of approximately 9,000 sq ft. A large portion of the farmland lies within the valley immediately to the south of the farmyard running to Long Lane. In addition, are three separate land parcels lying within close proximity of the main land parcel. The land has been farmed within an arable rotation, but latterly has all been laid to pasture.
