    About this property

    • Parsonage Farm presents an exciting opportunity to breathe new life into what has been a much loved family home for 53 years. Situated at the northeast corner of the Marsh Baldon Village Green, the house dates from the 17th century and is timber framed with brick infills. It was remodelled and substantially extended during the 19th century.

      The house sits back off the lane, facing south, behind a pretty and established walled garden. The front door opens to a central hallway with Victorian tiled floor. Two square reception rooms are situated either side and are in the oldest part of the house. Timber framing and some herringbone brick is exposed. Both rooms have open fireplaces. The large kitchen is situated at the rear of the farmhouse with doors opening to one of the reception rooms, the hall, a further smaller reception room, utility room, cloakroom and rear hall. Presently there are wooden units with an oven, hob, dishwasher and fridge. The rear hallway accesses a shower room, office, secondary staircase and outside doors to both sides of the house. There is also a cellar with stairs down from the front hall.

      Stairs rise from the hall, with a quarter turn, to the first floor where there are five bedrooms and a family bathroom. The secondary staircase at the end of the corridor lands in the rear hall by one of the back doors. From the landing the main staircase continues to the second floor, again with a quarter turn, to two attic rooms.

      Outside
      The driveway leads past the front garden and house to a yard at the rear. Here there are five timber stables, feed store and tack store. Attached to the house is a brick coal bunker with a rug store behind. There is also a separate wooden garage with store behind. Beyond the yard is an orchard and paddocks. In all about one and half acres.
