** SUBSTANTIAL GRADE II LISTED FORMER FARMHOUSE ** 5 DOUBLE BEDROOMS ** 4 MAIN RECEPTIONS ** MASTER WITH LARGE ENSUITE & DRESSING ROOM ** ADDITIONAL ATTIC ROOMS ** TASTEFULLY RENOVATED THROUGHOUT ** APPROX HALF ACRE PLOT ** GENEROUS PARKING **

We have pleasure in offering to the market this handsome double fronted Georgian Grade II Listed former farmhouse, located on a deceptive corner plot which approaches half an acre within this well placed edge of Vale village.

Chestnut Farm offers a wealth of versatile accommodation which extends to in excess of 3500 sq ft, sympathetically renovated and now providing a substantial individual family home.

The impressive nature of this home is apparent when you arrive at the double fronted facade with central doorway leading into an entrance hall with beautiful York stone floor and the original spindle balustrade staircase. There are two well proportioned initial receptions creating formal dining or sitting rooms with attractive live fireplaces. The centrally located dining room is situated adjacent to the kitchen and forms the heart of the home, offering a wealth of character having period stove with the original dresser unit to the side and quarry tiled floor, this links to a useful study, cloakroom and in turn the kitchen which has been tastefully refurbished to complement the period of the house. Leading off here is a substantial walk-in pantry and separate utility room.

The property boasts two staircases with the main staircase rising from the entrance hall to the landing with five double bedrooms, the master benefitting from substantial ensuite and walk-in dressing room, plus the beautifully appointed main bathroom. Located in the eaves are two further potential rooms the only area of the house which hasn't seen restoration, yet still provide a wealth of character and a useful level of storage at this current time but clearly with the potential to create additional bedrooms or reception space should this be required.

Occupying a pleasant established corner plot with generous driveway, established lawns with mature trees and shrubs overall creating an excellent outdoor space and the only way to truly appreciate this fascinating home is by internal inspection.
