About this property

  • A most attractive timber framed farmhouse with origins dating back to the mid-14th Century. Cromer Farm is Grade II* listed and enjoys an idyllic location on the edge of this popular hamlet with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

    This period home retains a number of features consistent with the age and features a wealth of exposed timbers and a number of feature fireplaces. Later additions provide spacious additional accommodation with two staircases providing access to five bedrooms and the newly finished restoration has truly brought the house up to 21st century living standards.

    The accommodation comprises of a reception hallway, cellar, cloakroom/wc, a prep kitchen/breakfast room, laundry room, dining room, TV room, sitting room and a sun room which is in the process of being converted to a large open plan new kitchen area with bi folding doors onto the courtyard.
    On the first floor landing there are five bedrooms and three bathrooms, a store room and an charming open plan snug / library.

    In addition to the farmhouse, there is a substantial block of stables, an old forge, piggery and a detached Grade II Listed Granary. Whilst currently offering equestrian use the outbuildings also offer a fantastic opportunity for conversion into auxiliary accommodation, home offices, leisure or garaging with a wide variety of other potential uses (STC).

    The farmhouse occupies formal gardens and paddocks of just under six acres, with an additional eleven or so acres to the south, currently used for grazing which is available by separate negotiation.
