About this property

  • With idyllic views across a meadow to the church, College Farm House is a picturesque period cottage that has been sympathetically updated by the present owners to create
    a charming family home. The original bread oven, inglenook fireplaces, exposed beams and ledged doors have been retained and complimented by the addition of a stunning oak framed kitchen extension with bi-fold doors opening to the west facing garden. The 4 door electric Aga and oak units with granite worktops present a contemporary living space for family and entertaining. Originally owned by Corpus Christi College and believed to date to circa 1598, the property also offers 3 good sized and delightful reception rooms, 2 with inglenook fireplaces with wood burning stoves. The cellar is accessed via a hatch and stairs in the dining room and is dry and usable storage space. The stairs lead off from the family room to a principal bedroom with ample wardrobe space and an en suite bathroom with separate shower. There are
    2 further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a smaller room presently used as a study.

    An oak framed triple bay garage with workshop and flat above offers useful ancillary space. The green oak summerhouse and pizza oven make for easy summer entertaining. The garden is mostly laid to lawn with mature trees, a small spinney and mixed herbaceous border around the summerhouse. In all about 0.75 acres.

    Water, electric and drainage all connected. Oil central heating. High speed Broadband.
