About this property

  • Robbs Farmhouse is charming and occupies an exceptional position at the end of a long private track abutting open countryside to provide far reaching field views. The property is complemented by a series of substantial and versatile outbuildings, a five bay cart lodge, stable yard, garage and a self-contained detached granary. The property stands in just under six acres.

    The house dates back to the 17th century and is Grade II Listed. The property is very well maintained throughout and retains much of its original character and charm with mullion windows, exposed beams, oak floors and a wood burning stove in the handsome drawing room, which also has the original oak front door. The dining room is off the kitchen and benefits from an open fireplace, stairs to the first floor and door out. The sitting room has a wood burning stove and door out on to the terrace. The kitchen/breakfast room is divided by open studwork and is equipped with an oil fired AGA and a quarry tile floor. On the first floor there are four bedrooms and three bath/shower rooms, all with stunning views over the countryside.

    The truly rural position of Robbs Farm is fully appreciated as you approach along the drive. The gardens are principally laid to lawn interspersed with mature trees. The laundry has plumbing for a washing machine, twin ‘Butler' sinks and an oil fired boiler. There are an excellent range of outbuildings/barns as well as stabling, greenhouse, outhouses and a manege. The Granary building/Annexe is located just beyond the main house and is a superb conversion. There are attractive lawned gardens around the house and paddocks lead out from the stables and outbuildings.

I was astonished and delighted by the wonderful tranquil setting of Robbs Farmhouse. The added advantage of the Granary annexe and numerous outbuildings make this property very special indeed.
