  • Ferleyn is thought to date from around 1875 and is an attractive period house which once served as the local school. Constructed in traditional methods with stone and a slate roof the property is presented in excellent condition, having been updated and extended by the present owners over the years to create a wonderful family home. The property benefits from a ground source heat pump.

    Internally the property has excellent sized rooms all on one level, with the exception of two stairs leading to the dining room and kitchen. A bright spacious hallway leads to the accommodation, although for everyday use, our clients use the rear porch for access.

    The drawing room is to the left: this is an elegant room with double aspect windows framing open views, a beamed ceiling, fireplace, bookshelves, and a door to the home office with FTTP broadband. From the drawing room there is access to the formal dining room with windows to the side, and the bespoke fitted farmhouse-style kitchen which has floor and wall units, an AGA, space for a breakfast table, and windows to the rear. Double doors lead to the bright garden room with windows to both sides, fireplace and access to the rear porch.

    There are four bedrooms: the principal bedroom has been extended to create a dressing area and en suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and utility room.

    The grounds of Ferleyn extend to around 1 acre, mainly laid to lawn with shrubs and bushes. There is a paved patio area for summer dining. The driveway with parking for several cars, leads to the excellent sized garage with two double doors, access to further storage cupboard and workshop. A stable block to the side includes 3 loose boxes and a tack room.

Ferleyn is a lovely bright spacious family home in the countryside but close to amenities, it also has the added benefit of the large garage and stores which with the correct planning permission could be converted.
