About this property

  • The three dwellings at Little Broad Reed Farm are all nicely presented and individual in character. The Grade ll listed farmhouse is traditional in style, providing family-sized accommodation, with an abundance of character including exposed timbers throughout (with some restricted head height) and inglenook fireplaces to both reception rooms. It also benefits from an attractive outside entertainment terrace.

    The barn is also Grade ll listed and is a modern character conversion, with an abundance of exposed light oak, tiled ground floor rooms, with oil fired underfloor heating (separate, but fed from the same tank as the house) and vaulted exposed ceilings, complementing the style and creating a very spacious feel throughout.

    The flat is situated above the open three bay garage block, with an outside staircase and electric heating, being compact in design, so ideal for staff accommodation or for an older teenage child. All three properties are currently let as holiday lets by our selling clients. All three properties run off the same water and power supply and use the same Clargester for sewage.

    Little Broad Reed Farm is set in a delightful semi-rural location, within surrounding land of about 12.27 acres, mainly paddocks but with some areas of woodland, approached off this quiet, narrow lane, along a straight tree-lined gated drive, creating the perfect setting.

    The farmhouse and barn both have separate gardens, providing reasonable seclusion and there is plenty of parking around the garage block, which is built in keeping with the other properties and incorporates a clock face to the main facade.

    There is a large modern timber frame barn building beyond the garage block, with corrugated roof and sides, which extends out to the far side and provides for further covered parking, with the drive spurring off around to the front.

    Lower down, behind this, there is a large gated, enclosed block of stables in a concrete yard, with 7 stables, a hay store and lock up rooms, used as a tack room, workshop and store. The Water, lighting and power to these areas is from the same supply as the dwellings.

    To the far side, away from the properties, across the secondary drive, there is a floodlit sand school. In addition, there are two further stables to the back of the garage block used as storage.

    Beyond the storage barn, on the spur drive, there is substantial modern insulated steel farm building, laid out as an office and store, with power and lighting. This extends to approximately 167 sq meters, with a approximately a further 167 meter mezzanine floor above with two good sized rooms, making for a sizable working space, together with a kitchenette and w.c. There is a tractor/lorry store to one end, but otherwise the barn is fully enclosed, complete with PVC windows, fitted with shutters.

    This farm building has generous parking to the front and gives vehicle access to the secondary drive, with gated access to Criers Lane.

    The land comprises five fields with hedging and fencing, leading uphill on both sides of the valley. Two streams cross through the land and intersect to one corner of the plot. In all about 12.27 acres, without public rights of way.

    Further landholdings to the other side of Dog Kennel Lane and Criers lane, may be available by separate negotiation.
