    About this property

    • Willow Farm is a wonderfully positioned period home, with a south facing aspect overlooking park like grounds that form part of the 4.5 acres surrounding the house. There is an excellent range of outbuildings, and the privacy and peace the house enjoys is enhanced by the fantastic views over farmland to the west.

      The attractive farmhouse, of mellow brick under a pantile roof, enjoys almost 2500 sq ft of living space with plenty of natural light, tall ceilings and character. The functional layout is a classic in its arrangement, with the living room with woodburner and a dining room at the front of the house, with the day to day space at the rear. This includes a substantial kitchen/breakfast room with fine far reaching views from the sink and generally, an adjoining utility room and a further room that could be utilised in many ways. Also at the rear is a garden room leading to a boot room that connects through to a run of store rooms.

      The first floor has a light and airy principal bedroom, with adjoining bathroom, with a further two spacious double bedrooms and both double aspect, with a family bathroom.

      The house has been well maintained but is now at the stage where it would benefit from updating. The house is not listed and sits within the middle of the grounds, so there is excellent scope.

      Willow Farm is approached from the east over a driveway that sweeps up to the front of the house, and a large parking and turning area. The drive continues to the back of the house, linking through to the garaging and outbuildings.

      The gardens and grounds are a delight, surrounding the house on all sides. To the south is an expanse of park like meadow, with mown paths between longer grass, with an assortment of fine trees throughout including oak, beech and lime. Extensive areas of lawn flow around the house, with fences and hedges creating enclosed areas of vary sizes before the land opens up to a meadow and wooded area. An enclosed paved area is on the east side of the house, with access from the boot room.

      The traditional single storey barns are to the south-west of the house.

    This is the sort of opportunity to get the imagination flowing, I enjoyed running through the various things I would do with all the barns and house itself.
