About this property

  • Place Farm House is a substantial country house which stands well within its grounds at the end of a long tree lined drive. The house is brick built with white elevations under a tiled roof and is believed to date from 1840. The accommodation is laid out over three floors and is spacious enough to house a large family. There are well proportioned reception rooms with delightful features including the hall, drawing room and dining room, all of which have a westerly outlook towards the moat.

    Upstairs there are a number of good sized bedrooms and well appointed en suite bathrooms. The accommodation benefits from a number of working marble fireplaces, shuttered sash windows, fitted bookcases and cupboards as well as an oil fired Aga and oil fired central heating.

    The gardens and grounds are extensive and with the two useful fields amount to approx. 13 acres. Near to the house are two attractive walled areas of garden but the principal feature is the former moat which creates an enchanting island with an orchard, accessed over a wooden bridge. This area is a haven for wildlife with a large number of wild duck and other birds. There are many mature trees on the property including fine examples of oak, beech, lime and horse chestnut.

    Agents Note: Please note there is the benefit of a right of way over the back drive at all times for vehicles and pedestrians

I love how well proportioned the rooms are with good ceiling heights, couple with the gardens and paddock land makes this property very special indeed.
