About this property

  • Elms Farm is believed to date back to the C17th and is Grade II Listed being of special historical or architectural importance.

Internally the house is laid out over two floors and is presented to a high standard throughout with numerous features including, exposed beams and studwork, original doors, stone floors and polished oak boarded floors. The kitchen is superbly fitted with a large island unit which houses all the storage units, a fitted dishwasher, NEFF induction hob with Elica extractor, built in NEFF oven and sinks, with stone work surfaces. There is also an oil fired Rayburn. To one side of the kitchen is the utility/boot room which provides base units, a sink and space for a washing machine and dryer as well as a cloakroom. The two principal reception rooms are well proportioned light, airy rooms with large windows over looking the gardens. There is an impressive fireplace in the sitting room fitted with a wood burning stove. A study lies off the sitting room as well as a second cloakroom. The first floor is approached via a wooden staircase which leads onto a landing which leads through to a master bedroom. There are a further three bedrooms and a family bathroom. The property has planning permission to create an en suite shower room off the master bedroom.

    The drive is surrounded on one side by a high flint wall and culminates in a large graveled parking sweep to the front of the house, giving access to a double cart lodge, workshop and shed and a log store. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn both at the front and the rear with established hedging and trees, providing the property with a high degree of privacy and seclusion. There is also an orchard with apple and pear trees, a wooded area and a partial moat along the western boundary.
