Converted in the mid 1980s into a dwelling, this superbly located property is curtilage Listed, with weather boarded elevations over a painted brick plinth under a pantiled roof. Extending to approximately 2,780 sq ft, this attractive home has an Inglenook fireplace and some exposed timbers. There is double glazing and oil fired central heating. The light and spacious accommodation incorporates a welcoming reception hall with an exposed brick floor and French doors to the front. The generously sized double aspect sitting room has windows to the front and rear, Inglenook fireplace housing wood burning stove with tiled hearth and exposed timbers.
The spacious kitchen/breakfast room has outlooks to the rear and French doors to a terrace, fitted base and eye level units, granite worktops with upstands, twin Belfast sink with drainer, two door oil fired Aga, integrated dishwasher, fridge and freezer, exposed brick floor and stairs to the first floor.

Opposite is a well finished shower/cloakroom. The good sized dining room overlooks the garden and the large utility room has fitted base and eye level units, worktops, one and a half bowl sink with drainer, space and plumbing for American style fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer, oil fired boiler, exposed brick floor and door to outside.

Bridgefield Farm has a pair of five bar wooden gates leading to a gravel driveway providing parking for several cars and access to the two bay carport and gym/office. The gym/office has windows to the front and side, electric wall heaters and French doors to the car port. There are two large adjacent barns currently used for storage, offering potential (subject to the necessary planning consents). The north barn has previously been granted planning consent (now lapsed) Ref: SE/10/1540 for demolition and replacement with a new barn for additional garaging and garden/workshop use. The summerhouse, currently used as a garden store, is located to the rear of the barn, with three windows. Accessed by a separate five bar wooden gate, with a further gravel driveway, is a recently installed tractor shed/garage, (which could serve as a stable) and machinery store, which adjoin the post and rail paddock.
The gardens feature a large natural pond adjacent to the terrace which runs along the western rear elevation of the house. The current owners have planted many trees during their ownership and the gardens are fringed by mature hedged boundaries.
