Description

Castle Hill Farmhouse is a charming detached Grade II listed house with a wealth of character. Understood to originally date from the 1650s with later additions, the property has been sympathetically restored and subtly updated over the years by the current vendors. The accommodation is arranged over three floors and provides well presented accommodation of spacious proportions with a flexible layout. The property is set in about 1.12 acres enjoying a south west facing garden to the rear, backing onto open fields. Also of particular note is the detached annexe, benefitting from planning permission 17/01097/LBC for a single storey extension and the erection of a garage/store.
