    About this property

    • Cranyke Farm House is an imposing Grade II Listed dwelling, formerly a working farm until the mid 1900s with parts of the property dating back to the 17th Century. Later additions in the 1800s, 20th and 21st centuries including incorporation of a barn have created a sizeable family home boasting in excess of 4,000 sq ft.

      The current owner occupiers have sympathetically refurbished the farmhouse during their occupation, retaining many period features in the process.

      A block paved drive and set of wrought iron double gates lead through to the parking area and onto the rear entrance. Off the rear entrance hall sits a boiler/boot room with fitted base units, shelving and full height storage cupboards, part of which contain the heating controls. Also off the rear entrance hall is a ground floor W.C with a fitted shower and a utility room which benefits from space and plumbing for appliances and a Belfast sink.

      Stairs from the rear entrance hall lead to a sizeable first floor annexe/ apartment, made up of a large, dual aspect lounge diner and a double bedroom with an en suite shower room.

      The delightful breakfast kitchen spans the depth of the property, includes a separate walk in larder and incorporates a range of oak effect base and wall units, a central chef's island with inset sink and is fitted with a range of appliances to include a Bosch dishwasher, an integral Bosch fridge freezer and a cream Aga. The sitting/dining area boasts a vaulted ceiling with inset skylights, a multi-fuel Aga log burner and French doors out to the block paved seating area to the east aspect.

      Off the breakfast kitchen leading to the front of the property there is an attractive sitting room with an original quarry tiled floor, an open fire with ornate timber surround and alcove storage in place of what was originally believed to be the bread oven. The double fronted dining room provides a pleasant formal seating area and is accessible off both the kitchen and sitting room.

      Two further reception rooms which are positioned within the original part of the house are accessed via both the sitting room and the main front entrance hall. Both rooms feature working fires, oak flooring and window seats to the front aspect.

      Stairs ascend from the front entrance hall to the first floor landing, off which there are four double bedrooms, the largest of which sit in the 19th century part of the house whilst one of the four bedrooms benefits from an en suite shower room. The main family bathroom is also situated at first floor level and is fitted with a bath, a walk-in shower, low level W.C, pedestal hand wash basin and a heated towel rail.

      The second floor is occupied by the master suite which is made up of a double bedroom to the front of the property with feature cast iron fireplace and loft access and a four piece bathroom holding a fitted bath, low level W.C, pedestal hand wash basin, heated towel rail and a separate shower cubicle.

Also included within the sale is an old railway cutting, totalling 5 acres of woodland which holds an abundance of wildlife and provides pleasant walks.
