There are numerous wall to floor units with granite counters, range cooker and integrated appliances. This family living room leads to an inner hall which gives access to a cosy sitting room with exposed beams, a double bedroom and 4 piece family bathroom. The dining room is off the main hallway and leads into a home office. Steps lead down from the dining room into a well proportioned formal sitting room with an open fireplace. Off the entrance hall there is a cloakroom, utility room and boiler house.

    Stairs lead from the family room to the first floor where there are three further double bedrooms. The master bedroom has an impressive pitched roof with exposed beams. There is a further five- piece family bathroom and a shower room.

    The farmhouse is surrounded by an established garden of approximately 1.5 acres which is predominantly laid to lawn with planted borders and shrubs. The one acre lawn was previously a paddock and could easily revert. There is a flagged patio area also to the rear and side providing space for al fresco dining. The driveway is gated with a traditional farm gate and gravelled yard leading to a two vehicle carport.

    The detached barn is approximately 1200 sq. ft. and split over two floors. The three stables are well sized and there is a further hay barn and tack room. The barn offers potential to convert into ancillary accommodation, plans having been passed in 2014 but not activated. New permission would have to be sought. Off the barn is a second entrance and extensive parking area suitable for a horse lorry.

    The two paddocks are located adjacent to the George's Lane Farm and are approximately 1 and 1.75 acres.

    Maintenance has recently been carried out on the thatched roof (Jan 21)
