About this property

  • Pages Green House is an enchanting, Grade II listed medieval farm house set in just over five acres, with excellent equestrian facilities and a detached, two storey office with high speed fibre internet.

    Originally a Hall House, believed to have been built 1385, the house has had a number of extensions and alterations throughout its 600 year life to form the present, wonderfully charming building. Character features abound, including exposed timbers and beams, studwork and leaded 18th century windows.

    The house today is a spacious five-bedroom farmhouse over three floors. A stable door leads to the delightful farm house kitchen, with tiled floor, pantry and AGA; beamed archways lead directly to the double aspect dining room. The sitting room is a superb space with a multi-fuel stove and beams; the two windows look out over the garden and fill the room with natural light.

    The upstairs accommodation comprises five well-proportioned bedrooms across two floors. The principal bedroom is especially pleasant with large floorboards, exposed timbers, chimneypiece and double aspect; and an adjoining en suite bathroom.

    OFFICE/STUDIO
    Pages Green House has a most wonderful and spacious two storey office and studio, with kitchen and lavatory. This timber framed building has a pantile roof and like the house retains many period features including beautiful exposed timbers.

    OUTSIDE
    Pages Green House is partly moated and sits in grounds of approximately 5.31 acres: there are two manèges, approximately 20 x 20 metres and 50 x 20 metres; stabling; post and railed paddocks and a field shelter.

    The house is approached via a shingle drive, with ample parking, cart lodge and stores. There are areas of lawns and mature gardens; the wildlife at the property is varied and mesmerising.
