A superbly positioned and exciting Grade II listed farmhouse in need of modernisation with an extensive range of stone outbuildings and about 1.33 acres
Thornlands Farm, thought to date from the mid-17th century and is Grade II listed, now requires significant work to restore it to its former glory. Offering an exciting and rare opportunity there is huge scope to create a wonderful family home whilst enjoying the delightful semi-rural setting. Inside there are many period features including a stone flag floor in the kitchen, inglenook fireplaces and many exposed beams and window lintels. The ground floor accommodation comprises three wonderful reception rooms all with views over the garden whilst two enjoy feature fireplaces. There is a sociable kitchen centred around the Aga with an adjacent utility room, WC and rear porch providing access to outside.
Stairs rise to the first floor where there is a generous landing leading to four bedrooms (one en suite) and a family bathroom. Bedroom one is of particular interest with a pleasant outlook and an en suite bathroom.
Perhaps one of the most impressive and exciting features of Thornlands Farm is its range of stone built outbuildings arranged perpendicular to each other in an L-shape arrangement whilst creating an open sided courtyard to the house. These barns have huge scope for further enhancement (subject to necessary planning consents) whilst currently providing a great space for storage and a workshop.
Gardens and Grounds
Thornlands Farm benefits from a generous, private south-facing rear lawned garden which is surrounded by a stone wall. To the west of the house is an additional smaller walled garden and the house is approached by a gated private drive which leads to the courtyard where there is ample marking for many cars. Either side of the dive are two excellent paddocks with gated access allowing for a variety of uses. In all the gardens and paddocks equate to about 1.33 acres. A further 7.45 acres of land is available by separate negotiation and does not adjoin Thornlands Farm.
