In 1957 the original property was converted into three individual dwellings, the others being Mapletree Farm West and Little Mapletree.The accommodation offers immense charm throughout yet versatile enough for the rigours of modern family living. The main entrance leads into a porch and generous vestibule, then into the exquisite sitting room with beamed ceiling and original inglenook fireplace complete with bread oven. The adjacent dining room leads through to the quintessential farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room with an extensive range of custom made units and a mains gas AGA.
