About this property

  • High Tree Farm is a stunning 16th century hall house and is Grade II listed. Extended to incorporate the adjacent timber barn by the current owners the house now offers exemplary living space whilst retaining an abundance of charm and character.
    Modern conveniences include a bespoke hand built kitchen and under floor heating.

    In the main house, on the ground floor centred off a grand reception hallway you will find the incredible open plan living / dining / kitchen with a high vaulted and timber ceiling. There are also a further four reception areas, three of which interconnect to provide a more intimate dining space, snug and study. In addition there is a sitting room with a brick fireplace. There is a plant room and a ground floor bedroom next to a guest cloakroom. Completing the ground floor is a utility room, walk in larder, a boot room and a further guest cloakroom.

    Upstairs, accessed via two staircases, are three further bedrooms, two bathrooms and a shower room (all en suite). The main bedroom suite enjoys a sumptuous en suite bathroom and fitted wardrobes.

    Outside, there is a wonderful enclosed courtyard connecting the house with the outbuildings, with a car port next to the utility room. The nearest one to the house is a large L shaped single storey wing that has been divided into various rooms for commercial use with a toilet and kitchenette. This area offers potential for conversion into ancillary accommodation, subject to planning.

    Overall, the house sits in just under 8.14 acres. Within the garden area to the rear of the house is an outdoor pool, next to which is a modern pool house that offers a changing area with shower, games room, toilet and a wine store. There are various other outbuildings including a substantial modern barn with a variety of possible uses. Please refer to our floorplans for further details and sizes.

    The house sits proudly to the front of the plot overlooking the green with the gardens to the rear meandering into a series of paddocks to the rear, in which sits another building which could serve as stables if required.

I was taken back by the amount of space and flexibility that High Tree Farm can offer! The outbuildings work brilliantly if you want to run a business from home but equally could be converted into a fabulous annex for extended family. The remaining barns could still be used to store a classic car collection.....
