About this property

  • Church Farm House is a fine example of a Georgian style village house in an enviable position down a tree lined drive with views over rolling pasture. The house dates from 1861 and is on the market for the first time in 50 years. Built of Cambridgeshire white brick with double hung, mostly double glazed, sash windows with attractive painted shutters, the house has well proportioned accommodation laid out over two floors added to which is a more modern extension which contains an integral double garage tucked in around to the rear. The current owners have carried out many improvements over the years including the installation of an energy saving water heating panel and an array of photovoltaic panels situated beside the paddock. The property is well presented but would benefit from a degree of updating including replacement of the kitchen and some of the bathrooms.

    On the ground floor there is a well proportioned drawing room with dual aspect, a door to the rear and open fireplace; a lovely dining room, family room with double French doors a study and spacious cloakroom with storage. From the main entrance hallway there is a utility area and the kitchen/breakfast room with a range of units, a peninsula work surface and banquette seating. Off the kitchen is a large larder/pantry and to the other side of the utility area there is the aforementioned family room. The integral garage is accessed from a roller shutter door and the utility area. The integral garage area would offer potential for incorporation into the house as additional or annexe accommodation and was designed by the owners with this in mind.

    At first floor level there are six bedrooms, three bathrooms and a separate WC. The main bedroom has dual aspects, an en suite bathroom which connects to bedroom six - currently used as a dressing room. Above the original part of the house is a large attic accessed via a staircase from the main landing which may offer additional potential for conversion subject to any necessary consents.

    Set back from the village road down a long driveway lined by mature trees, the house stands on slightly elevated ground with a manicured level lawn to the front fringed on one side by rose and shrub borders and a mature tree belt to the boundaries. The driveway leads up to the house and continues to a further garage/outbuilding. The drive continues to the integral double garage with roller shutter door. The rest of the gardens are predominately situated to one side of the house with mature hedging. There is a post and railed paddock area, an enclosure housing the PV panels on a metal structure and a paved terrace immediately to the rear of the house.

    In all about 1.39 acres.

    Oil fired central heating with modern boiler in the garage.
