About this property

  • Dating from 1720 Free Green Farm is a magnificent Georgian Grade II listed country house and one of the finest period homes in the area.

    Behind the elegant double fronted façade is a home of undoubted merit with some unrivalled period features. This charming home has been owned by the present family since 1931. The property presents a fantastic opportunity for buyers to stamp their own mark upon it.

    The accommodation is classically presented and includes a dining hall with an oak floor, a stone fireplace and a cloakroom with a WC. The oak panelled dual aspect library/study has another stone fireplace and window seating overlooking the woodland to the front.

    The drawing room is outstanding with its large fireplace, oak flooring, library shelving, garden views from the window seating and superb oak ceiling mouldings. Opening into an elegant conservatory, this is a wonderful entertaining area.

    The farmhouse kitchen has plenty of space for a large dining table, a decent larder, a double AGA and a door opening to the garden and pool area. A conservatory with terra cotta floor tiles lies off and overlooks the gardens and swimming pool.

    A boot room with a rear entrance door lies to the rear and has a utility area, dual aspect and a tiled floor. There is a door into the changing room and a WC for the swimming pool.
