An attractive Grade II listed period farmhouse set in about 14 acres with a range of outbuildings.
Arranged over two floors, including many original features, the house was extensively refurbished and renovated in 2017. Petsey Farm is quoted in Pevsners Architectural Guide, A charming black and white house with some unusual details, dated 1634.
The front door opens into an entrance hall with tiled flooring which leads to an impressive drawing room with exposed beams and a feature fire place. The kitchen benefits from a range of built in cupboards and units with wooden worktops, a CookMaster cooker and extractor, large pantry, currently being used as an office, and a utility room leading off.
The sitting room is of particular interest, with two panels of listed foliage and motifs painted across studs, now protected behind two pairs of doors.
There is a further living room, currently being used as a children's playroom and back hallway with quarry tiles leading to a WC via a large cloakroom with access to the cellars.
The first floor is split into two, with a passageway providing a link between the two parts. The main staircase leads to two double bedrooms, the principal en suite and the family shower room. A second staircase leading from the kitchen provides access to a further double room and en suite bedroom.
Petsey Farm is set in about 14.66 acres of farmland offering good grazing with the River Tern providing a picturesque, natural boundary to the East. The farm is situated down a private driveway which continues around to the rear of the property where there is ample parking and access to the farm buildings. To the right of the house is a sizable garden laid to lawn.
The property benefits from a range of traditional and more modern farm buildings. Pre-application advice has been obtained from the Local Planning Authority for their view on the potential for conversion of the L shaped traditional stone barn into domestic accommodation, PREAPP/18/00285.
Adjacent to this is a large steel portal framed shed, previously used for cattle housing. Opposite is a further open fronted brick building with a pitched roof with further outbuildings behind. Additionally there is another large steel portal framed shed. There are also two separate Dutch barns, a concrete yard and slurry tank. To the East of the house is a wooden gardeners shed and a barn with a pitched roof.
Proposed Farm Access Track
The vendor has applied for planning consent and will oblige themselves to build a new access track to the farmland and buildings to the west and rear of Petsey Farm. The new track will veer away from the current track in a westerly direction, skirting the land and buildings being sold with Petsey Farm. The vendor will construct the access track as per the specification plan, details available from the agent. The bell mouth entrance to Petsey Farm will be tarmacked up to the area where the new track veers away and the track will be constructed in stone on land outside of the boundary of Petsey Farm. The bell mouth entrance area will be sold with Petsey Farm, with the neighbouring farm (Cotton Farm) sharing in the use and maintenance of this area. The purchaser of Petsey Farm will additionally have the benefit of using the new access track in order to access the farm buildings.
The vendor has recently been successful in modifying the route of the historic public footpath, taking this away from skirting around the farmhouse with the route now being on the boundary of the land being sold.
