About this property

  • This detached house, tucked away in a quiet position within a short distance of the village centre, was built by the vendor and has been a much loved family home for almost 60 years. The plot was formerly the orchard for the neighbouring property and was purchased by the vendor at auction in 1965; over the years it has been well maintained and the gardens have been beautifully landscaped by the vendors themselves – it's a very special home in a lovely setting.

    Internally the property is somewhat dated and offers fantastic potential for improvement and modernisation. Much of the interior is original from when the house was built, and there are some lovely character features such as a wood burning stove in the sitting room, parquet flooring in the entrance hall and sitting room, and ‘chequerboard' tiled flooring in the kitchen.

    The house feels bright and airy, with tall windows and high ceilings offering excellent natural light. There's a sitting room leading to a conservatory, a study which would also make a great snug or playroom, a cloakroom with WC and an open plan kitchen and dining room with triple aspect and an adjoining utility room. Upstairs there are three good-size double bedrooms, a bathroom and a separate WC.

    The Farthings is accessed via a shared driveway over a cattle grid, which leads along a drive to a gated parking area. A detached coach house has garaging and stables, and offers fantastic potential for partial or full conversion to an annexe, subject to permissions – it's a charming building that provides a lovely first impression. The house is immersed in tranquil and beautifully landscaped gardens, with mature trees and shrubs throughout and flowerbeds filled with a variety of vibrant blooms. The vendors have planted redcurrants, gooseberries, raspberries and a selection of herbs, and trees include apple, greengage, damson, fig, Mirabelle plum and walnut. There are three ponds – one adjoining the terrace by the house, and larger ponds adjoining the lawn – and a number of spaces to sit and enjoy the outside space. In total about 0.6 acres.
