    About this property

    • Carriers Farm is a pretty, thatched Grade II listed property with mature south facing gardens, adjacent field, small area of woodland and range of versatile outbuildings, including stables and kennels. The property, believed to originate in part from the 15th century with later additions, has been in the same ownership for over twenty years and now presents the opportunity for some updating.

      Internal accommodation comprises; a lovely double reception room with exposed beams, inglenook fireplace with original bread ovens in situ and bressumer over, a dual aspect dining room, an L shaped kitchen/breakfast room equipped with fitted cupboards and various appliances including a Neff oven, range cooker and dishwasher. To the other end of the room is the cosy breakfast area with wood burning stove. Brick steps lead down to the cellar.

      A utility/boot room with Belfast sink and concealed boiler cupboard and a WC complete the ground floor. Stairs lead up to the first floor where the main bedroom benefits from its own en suite bathroom and adjoining dressing room. Stairs lead up from this bedroom to a flexible attic space with fitted cupboards. Over the remainder of first floor there are three further bedrooms, one with a small en suite shower and the others served by a large family bathroom.

      Carriers Farm is approached via two drives one leading to the garage with parking in front and the other which leads to the field. The gardens surround the house, with the main gardens stretching away from the terrace which lies immediately to the rear of the house. There are many coniferous and deciduous trees, specimen trees and shrubs. Outbuildings include a summerhouse, a detached garage with room/office above and several stables and dogs kennel around a hard standing yard.
