    About this property

    • The Old Farmhouse is a splendid Grade II listed family residence, exuding timeless charm with a modern twist across its three floors.

      The reception areas are all well-proportioned, but the hall is one of a few standout features with exposed beams and a substantial inglenook fireplace housing a rustic wood-burning stove. The drawing room boasts a partially vaulted ceiling, bathing in natural light from its full-height windows, which frame garden views from three vantage points. Here, another remarkable inglenook-style fireplace, complete with a brick chimney breast and hearth, serves as a focal point.

      The heart of the home, the farmhouse-style kitchen, features bespoke wooden cabinetry, a classic butler sink, and the warmth of an Aga stove. French doors lead out to the terrace and garden, enticing al fresco gatherings.

      On first floor level, is the principal bedroom suite accompanied by four additional bedrooms (one with an en suite) and a family bathroom. On the second floor are two loft rooms that could be used as further accommodation or loft space for storage.

      A welcoming five-bar gate ushers you to a driveway and ample off-road parking for multiple vehicles. The rear of the property unveils a serene, landscaped garden, boasting lush lawns, flourishing borders, and mature trees.

      Notably, the property is divided into two titles: one for the main house and its gardens encompassing approximately 0.57 acres, and another of around 0.26 acres discreetly nestled at the garden's edge, which could be a potential building plot subject to the usual planning considerations.
