About this property

  • Williford Farm is a spacious detached bungalow situated in a glorious rural location a mile or so from the centre of Hermitage village. The property is likely to have been built in the mid to late 20th century and is of brick with a tiled roof. The accommodation is well presented and with a practical layout and from all the rooms are delightful views of the charming gardens. On the South Western elevation is a conservatory and beyond that the dining room with a lovely outlook over the farm and countryside beyond. There is a spacious family kitchen with an electric Everhot range cooker and double doors open into the dining room and access to a utility room. On the roof is a bank of Solar panels subject to the feed in tariff (details available on request).

    Williford Farm is approached from Williford Lane which runs into a private drive leading to just one other property. A wooden gate gives access to an ‘in and out' driveway where there is parking for several cars and access to a timber single garage. The gardens at Williford are delightful and the property sits nicely within the centre of them. Predominantly laid to lawn and bordered by mature hedging the garden has some nice mature trees including a small orchard, and the nearby wood provides a wonderful backdrop. To the east of the house is the Polytunnel and fruit cage and pathway leading through a wildlife garden with primroses and daffodils in abundance bounded by a ditch and stream. To the North of the house is the impressive stable block and yard, with brick and rendered elevations under a tiled roof and providing stabling, storage, tack room and office. To the West of the house a post and rail fence provides a boundary to the farm which is level and in five or six fenced enclosures with access to water. There are several timber sheds on the land and a superb steel framed barn (23.06m x 12.14m) with separate access and potential for residential conversion subject to the necessary consents.
