About this property

  • This is a fine Grade ll listed period house, with a striking Georgian front facade and with a wealth of character to the accommodation inside, including exposed beams to the walls and ceilings and inglenook fireplaces and is well presented and up to date throughout.

    The accommodation is laid out as two properties, comprising the main house and a smaller cottage, which can be operated independently but is also linked by doorways on each floor. Our clients have in the past successfully conducted long and short lets as a source of additional income but, alternatively, the accommodation can be utilised as one whole house, with generous accommodation and spaces.

    Lower Church Farmhouse is beautifully presented throughout and up-to-date, with modern fixtures and fittings. T6there are fine views to the rear and a lovely, secluded village garden, tiered down the hill, with a fine terrace onto three areas of lawn, a secluded courtyard for the annexe and a shingled vegetable garden, tucked away at the bottom.

    Our clients have recently been able to obtain listed buildings consent for a kitchen extension in-fill, which will incorporate a glassed over well in the floor. This will link the kitchen to the sitting room and enhance the flow and space within the main house.

There is lots to really appreciate here the Georgian façade, the fine views and the tucked away central village location all work for me, especially walking to the 'George and Dragon'!
