About this property

  • Grade II listed Paynters Farmhouse is a picturesque timber-framed building, with plaster infilling to the first floor and the ground floor rebuilt in red brick. The property is arranged over two storeys, and is believed to date from the 17th century with an 18th century extension at the west end. It was significantly renovated in the 1970s, and offers spacious accommodation with beautifully presented interiors and recently refitted bathrooms. Classic period features include a half-hipped tiled roof and casement windows; there is one original window with wooden mullions on the front elevation.

    The floorplans give an excellent overview of the full accommodation, please refer to them for an overview of the full extent and layout. There are three separate reception rooms: a sitting room with a working fireplace with cast iron hood and a heavy oak bressumer, a family room and a dining room.
    The kitchen/breakfast room is well equipped with granite surfaces and painted undercounter wood cabinets; it is served by a dry larder, a cold larder and utility room.
    The principal bedroom has an en suite shower room; there are three further bedrooms (two served by a Jack and Jill bathroom at the western end) and a family bathroom.

    The house is complemented by a detached annexe, known as Paynters Granary, which has an open plan ground floor living room/ kitchen, and a first floor vaulted bedroom and a bathroom. The annexe has an attached garage and French doors to the terrace which spans the rear of the Farmhouse and Granary.

    The property is set behind hedging and approached via a driveway offering parking. There is a further detached garage to the east, with raised beds behind.

    There is access to the enclosed rear garden either side of the house.

    The gardens have an expanse of lawn to the rear, with flowerbeds and mature trees and shrubs at the boundary. There are two well-stocked ponds and a greenhouse adjoining the annexe. The spacious terrace is accessible from both properties and provides an excellent space to enjoy the garden.

A really fine house and the annexe is such a great space, the vaulted ceiling is really impressive.
