Description

The Property
Old Grove Farm is a wonderfully rare opportunity to acquire a period home, set in 4.5 acres (est). enjoying complete privacy surrounded by farmland. Approached via a long private drive set in unspoilt countryside, the property comprises a principal farmhouse with a range of outbuildings that could be utilised in many different ways .

The principal farmhouse, east facing, was originally a period farmhouse with an attached traditional barn now converted and incorporated to form one single dwelling. This provides a mix of open plan and more conventional living, over two floors, with adaptable accommodation. There are four bedrooms in total, and useful rooms such as utility, bootroom and study alongside the dining room, sitting room and large living room. It would be fair to say the house is now in need of updating in parts, and is unlisted providing scope for changes and extension if required and subject to gaining the necessary planning consents.

Outbuildings
The farm has a range of outbuildings, a mix of timber and solid construction, currently used for storage. These are in need of attention in areas, but provide a further opportunity for a variety of different uses.

Outside
Old Grove Farm is approached from the south, over a long drive flanked by mature hedging and open farmland, providing a lovely approach to the property. The drive continues to a parking and turning area adjoining the house and barns. A field gate leads round to the rear of the outbuildings.

The farm totals 4.5 acres (est). and was formerly used to grow garlic, with a fenced area of organically fertilised land providing most of the crop and now lending itself perfectly to a kitchen garden. The remainder of the land is mainly pasture sweeping away to the south-west, with an orchard, woodland and lawn surrounding the house.

The grounds are a haven for wildlife, with different species of deer spotted alongside badgers, foxes and plenty of birdlife.

Services
Mains water and electricity, private drainage, oil fired central heating.

Local Authority

Fixtures & Fittings
