A delightful farmhouse with ancillary buildings in a prime location on the mill stream.
Shafford Farmhouse offers a wonderful opportunity to those who may seek a property offering multi-generational living.
Once part of the well renowned Childwickbury Estate, the property today offers numerous opportunities given its array of properties and outbuildings including a fabulous substantial timber framed barn with its own games/entertainment room.
For those with an equestrian interest, the property boasts a run of large, a small manége and a paddock of about four acres set to the west of the property.
The principal house is believed to date back to the 16th century and offers some wonderful period features including a wealth of exposed ceiling timbers.
Although in need of some updating, the accommodation extends to over 2,700 sq ft and is arranged over two floors to suit a modern style way of living.
There are three large living rooms as well as a bright and spacious kitchen/breakfast room that features a vaulted ceiling.
On the first floor, four bedrooms, two with en suites and a bathroom can be found.
Situated immediately opposite the farmhouse is The Granary, which is a delightful detached cottage that's boasts its own private garden. This is ideal for other members of the family or indeed accommodation for any staff/nanny requirements and would potentially also generate an additional income stream, if required.
The Bothy is a large brick outbuilding which incorporates a comfortable self-contained annexe, which would be ideal accommodation for a groom or just simply let out to provide a further income stream. Attached is a large storage barn currently used for garden machinery.
Shafford Farmhouse is approached along a long driveway which is within the ownership of the property although affords access rights to two neighbouring properties known as Shafford Mill House and Stable House.
Upon reaching the property a large gravel driveway gently rises to an extensive parking area which can accommodate numerous cars, trailers and horse lorries alike.
Immediately behind the farmhouse is The Bothy and beyond that is the manege. The stables, outbuildings and party barn are all located to the east and beyond lies a lovely paddock which is enclosed by post and rail fencing.
