About this property

  • A detached Grade II listed former farmhouse situated on the edge of the village with views over open countryside.

    Stone construction under a slate roof, the house offers a wealth of period features including open fireplaces, exposed timbers, lead lights, shuttered windows, window seats, bay windows, exposed floor boards and four panel internal doors.

    The house has undergone various alterations over the past 25 years of the vendor's ownership, particularly to the kitchen/breakfast room with two oven Aga, semi-vaulted ceiling, island, granite worksurfaces and seating area.

    The sitting room and snug have open fireplaces, one with a wood burning stove, perfect for winter evenings.

    The majority of rooms are light and airy and flow off the central snug.

    There is the ever important utility room for boots, coats and muddy dogs.

    On the first floor are three bedrooms and useful study that has consent for conversion to a bathroom, making it en suite to bedroom one. There are two further bedrooms on the second floor with space and planning permission for an additional shower room.

    There is a well presented separate annexe ideal for income stream, guest or granny annexe. Area of garden to the rear. Attached to the annexe and internally linked is a studio, perfect for working from home or an additional room to the annexe.

    Across the driveway is a triple bay oak frame carport. Beyond is a lovely traditional stone outbuilding comprising workshop, former stables now used as storage and loft storage over. This offers potential for conversion to additional accommodation to the main house, subject to the relevant consents. Ample off road parking.

    The house sits within lovely level gardens laid to lawn with seating areas, swathes of lavender, mature trees, hornbeam hedges, pollarded lime trees, well and garden store (former privy). The gardens are a key aspect of this house and provide ample privacy.

    In all about 0.8 acres

Rookery Farm just keeps giving. The more you look, the more delights to be found. I love the potential of the second floor and the outbuildings. To have a separate annex with lovely gardens too, it really is wonderful.
