4 Bedroom Farm House For Sale

Believed to date back 350 years, this attractive double fronted Farmhouse enjoys a wonderful position within the village, benefitting from paddocks, stabling and unhindered views across open countryside.

This 17th Century family home is a warm and inviting family home, with bags of charm and many period features. You enter into a traditional hall, with original flagstones and wood panelling. To the right is a cosy dining room with wood burner. A large stone-mullioned window provides views of a mature orchard. A through door leads on to a new side extension, built by the current occupiers around 15 years ago, featuring more contemporary décor with underfloor heating and doors leading out to the garden. Currently used as a home office but would suit a variety of uses.

To the left of the entrance hall is the large and impressive family sitting room, also with a wood burner and two large, mullioned windows overlooking the front garden and lane beyond. The elm-plank door leading to the first floor is believed to be original.

To the rear of the house is a quaint kitchen with views over the paddock and hills beyond, which would now benefit from some modernisation. There is also a downstairs W.C., utility and boot room.

Upstairs there are three good sized double bedrooms and a further single. The corridor is particularly quirky and features distinctive wood panelling and flooring.

There is a family bathroom with over-the-bath shower and traditional sanitary ware. The first floor also benefits from elevated views out over the fields. There is also access to the loft space, via a steep staircase.

OUTSIDE

The property sits along a village lane, delineated by a dry-stone wall and some mature planting. A gravel drive leads from the entrance gate to the side of the property where there is ample parking for 4 or 5 vehicles. The front garden is primarily laid to grass, with a colourful shrub border and a small orchard area with a variety of fruit trees. Along the side runs a small kitchen garden and to the rear is a small stone shed. Directly behind, and fully visible from the house is the paddock, currently enjoyed by ponies, but has been used for sheep in the past. A small stable block with three stalls, large hardcourt area and smaller paddock is accessible twenty yards up the lane. The area contains fabulous hacking and a multitude of local riding schools and clubs.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Oil fired central heating. Mains electricity and water. Private drainage.
