Eastfield House is a handsome detached historic home of 15th century origins. Part of a working farm until 1980 and Listed Grade II, the house was modernised in the 1980's, but now offers tremendous scope for further updating and improvement.
Occupied by the same family since the 1870's and purchased by our clients in 1921, this is a very rare opportunity for the next custodians to create a stunning period family home in a picturesque rural hamlet. Many fine period features have been retained including working fireplaces with wood burners, exposed beams and timbers and ledged and braced interior doors.
The accommodation is generously proportioned and arranged over two floors and briefly comprises; imposing reception hall, with large walk-in store, three generous size reception rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room with the essential Aga and an adjoining utility with a cloakroom leading off. On the first floor are four double bedrooms and a contemporary re-fitted family bathroom.
Externally is a delightful garden and paddocks of c.4 acres, which face South-East.
Warmed by oil fired central heating and the more traditional feature of two wood burners.
A rare opportunity and offered with no forward chain.
Marston is a picturesque rural hamlet, surrounded by miles of rolling countryside with lovely views all around.
