Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Significant village house with about 41 acres and outstanding views.


The Old Farm is a most attractive and substantial detached Victorian house which was remodeled with a 'nod' to the Edwardian era and commands some of the most fabulous far reaching views in the county. The house is offered for sale as a whole with about 41 acres or up to four separate lots, subject to conditions.

Lot 1
The Old Farm is offered for sale with just over 1.5 acres of delightful gardens and grounds and provides over 4,000 sqft of living space over three floors as well as a separate self contained annexe of over 400 sqft. The house has been in the same family for over 40 years and has always represented a wonderful family home. The house still retains many features of the period including many sash windows, picture rails, fire places, fitted cupboards and a lovely wood turned balustrade staircase. In addition, the house has very recently undergone a full schedule of internal re-decoration works as well as new carpeting to all principle rooms and re-wiring.. The farmhouse style kitchen features a lovely gas fired Aga as well as providing ample space for a large breakfast/dining table. There are three main reception rooms in addition to the kitchen/breakfast room as well as a large conservatory which enjoys views over the gardens. There is a cellar, utility room and store room which all add to the great overall space the house offers.

There are seven bedrooms in all, five on the first floor and two on the second floor, although bedroom three would make for a great home office or playroom, if required.

In addition to the main house is a lovely fully self contained annexe which features a living area with kitchenette, a double bedroom and separate bathroom. This would be an ideal space for those needing to work from home or has a dependent relative or needs space for a 'live-in' au-pair/nanny.

The house is approached from Ivy Lane through a gate and over a large gravel driveway which provides extensive parking for numerous cars and leads to the double garage. The gardens to the rear are an absolute picture throughout the seasons and it is from the terrace that the incredible far reaching views can really be admired. The gardens have been carefully landscaped and briefly comprise lawned areas interspersed by well stock herbaceous borders. At the bottom of the garden is a pretty hand gate which gives access over to a further area of garden including a large croquet lawn/tennis court and orchard.
