Tenure: Freehold

Here is a superb opportunity to restore this magnificent farmhouse with many period features to its former glory. With a large plot, a detached converted barn and outbuildings, this incredible property has the potential to be extraordinary.

Built in the 1620's, Tylers Farm is a Grade II listed building with later additions. The house and barn have been recently re-roofed using clay pantiles and a new central heating system has been installed.The oil-fired boiler was replaced only a year ago. This property has had much major restoration work done already and is now ready for the next phase of refurbishment.

As you drive into the courtyard, you are immediately impressed by the wealth of character of the buildings - the barn on your right, the outbuildings on your left, and of course the farmhouse itself which sits proudly in front of you. All constructed of local, natural limestone, they are warm and welcoming. Enter the house through the boot room - somewhere to shed your coats and boots after a walk across the local fields with the dogs. There is plenty of space to hang pegs and hooks for all the outside clobber. On your left is a downstairs cloakroom, with stone walls and quarry tiled flooring.

From here you enter into the original farmhouse and cross the hall into the kitchen. Ah the hub of the house, with the 4 oven AGA begging to be leaned against, and somewhere to hang wet gloves and scarves. And cook on of course! There is ample space for a huge table for large family gatherings and merry reunions with great friends. There is access to an enormous pantry, stone steps down into a cool room with shelves for everything you could possibly need for baking and cooking. There is power and lighting down here, with space for fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer too.

Back in the hall, you enter the dining room, currently used as a study. This impressive room has an inglenook fireplace the full width of the room - imagine lighting this whilst catching up on homework or hunkered down with a classic novel.

At the end of the hall, enter the living room. A lovely space with a limestone flagged floor, limewashed walls, beamed ceiling and a classic stone fireplace, a haven at the end of a busy day.

Upstairs on the 1st floor via a turnkey staircase, there are 3 bedrooms and the family bathroom. Jute flooring from Fired Earth covers the landing and master bedroom floors. There is a walk-in wardrobe in the master bedroom, with shelves and a hanging rail.

In the bathroom, there is a traditional rolltop Victorian bath with feature Delft tiles over and beautiful classic, black and white tiles cover the bathroom floor.

From the landing there is another door which reveals another turnkey staircase to the 2nd floor to the attic. This is a truly amazing space, crying out to be converted into a 4th bedroom. With its pitched and beamed ceiling, and skylights overlooking the courtyard, this would be an incredible room to wake up in. Planning consent has already been granted to convert into a bedroom with en suite facilities.

Outside, well where does one start? First, there is the barn conversion. This is an impressive space, sympathetically converted using eco-friendly materials such as sheepswool insulation and underfloor heating downstairs. On the ground floor there is a lounge with terracotta tiles and clay paint walls. There is a kitchen which is not finished but has all the plumbing and appropriate wiring you need to kit out to your own design. A perfect blank canvas.

Upstairs there are 2 further bedrooms and a shower room. Each bedroom is carpeted and are both spacious double rooms. The shower room is a modern fully tiled space with mains powered corner shower.

From the courtyard there is access to a double garage with double wooden doors and power and lighting. There is a large stone storage shed with its own access next to the garage and opposite the barn there is a long stone outbuilding, split into 4 separate storage areas.

The courtyard is mainly hard standing, allowing for off street parking for at least 6 vehicles. There is grass on the outbuildings side. To the front of the property there is a large lawned garden, edged with mature hedges providing privacy, with 2 apple trees and a cherry tree which produce every year, giving enough fruit for several dozen pies!

This property is heated by oil fired central heating. The AGA is also powered by oil and is serviced twice a year.
