Charming Grade II listed farmhouse with annexe and range of versatile outbuildings, set in about two and half acres. No onward chain.
Understood to date from the mid-1600s, Easons Farmhouse is a charming Grade II listed former farmhouse, with attractive, part tile hung red and grey brick elevations under a steeply-pitched tiled roof with leaded light casement windows. During our clients' 18 year ownership the house has been lovingly maintained and updated over time, resulting in a comfortable home of great character, with all the benefit of modern fixtures and fittings. The house is accessed down a long, gated driveway and is surrounded by gardens and grounds of just under two and a half acres, also benefitting from a single-storey annexe and a range of versatile outbuildings, including two shepherds huts.
The farmhouse's studded oak front door opens to a small entrance porch with tiled floor, which is open to both the reception rooms: the sitting room is a spacious dual-aspect room with a wealth of period character including an inglenook fireplace set with a woodburning stove, handsome exposed timbers and oak flooring; the dining room features an original bread oven. Beyond the dining room is a small inner hall, giving access to a cloakroom, the open rear porch, a useful utility room with space for laundry appliances, and the kitchen.
The kitchen has space for a breakfast table and is fitted with a range of painted cabinetry with black granite worktops, a butler sink, a two-oven Rayburn, and additional appliances including an oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer and wine fridge.
Stairs rise from the sitting room to a galleried landing, off which lie four of the five bedrooms and the stylishly re-fitted family shower room; bedroom one has an equally stylish en suite bathroom. Bedroom five is situated on the second floor.
The Barn Annexe
Converted in 2014, The Barn lies on the south-eastern side of the house, with three sets of bi-fold doors opening onto the gravelled courtyard and arched windows overlooking the duck pond. Benefitting from a modern shower room, The Barn has a variety of uses including guest accommodation, a home office or entertaining space, and has an adjoining single car port.
Easons Farmhouse is accessed via a long gated driveway, leading to a part-gravelled parking area ahead of the house, beyond which is a reed-lined, stream-fed duck pond. The driveway runs alongside a large field extending away to the lane the front (north east) of the house and houses one of the two shepherd's huts, which has power connected and is used as an office.
The formal garden is bounded by a stream and post and rail fencing, and surrounds the farmhouse to three sides: mainly laid to lawn, dotted with fruit trees, with an octagonal timber summerhouse, a timber workshop and a part-walled gravelled courtyard to the south east. A second shepherd's hut in the courtyard is used as occasional guest accommodation.
The remainder of the grounds comprises a small fenced paddock lying beyond the garden.
In all, about 2.46 acres.
The neighbouring properties, Easons Barn and Easons Barn Stables, have a right of way over Easons Farmhouse's driveway.
