Gardens and Outbuildings
Parsonage Farm is approached off a country lane through an electric five bar gate onto a long gravel, lime tree lined driveway. There is a parking area to the front of the house and a further parking area for guests to the side. The grounds are beautifully planted and maintained with an orchard and former kitchen garden with green house bordered by beech hedging. Also to the front of the grounds is a full size, all-weather artificial grass tennis court. The period outbuildings form a courtyard with a substantial barn/ workshop which could be converted to other uses subject to planning, a further detached and vaulted barn/games room and a granary. To the rear of the house is a large terrace, a formal rose garden with box hedging and gravel pathways and a loggia, ideal for outdoor entertaining. The terrace area is beautifully planted with a host of plants and flowering shrubs and a fine Wisteria adorns the rear elevation of the house. Beyond the rose garden is a swimming pool with a roman end and a summer house with veranda, this area is screened by a brick and flint wall and clipped Yew hedging. The majority of the gardens are laid to lawn and interspersed with specimen trees and are bordered by hedging, backing and siding onto the adjacent paddock of just over two acres.
The grounds extend to about 7.25 acres in all.
