THE PROPERTY

The Old Farmhouse is the major portion of a historical thatched farmhouse which is located in a rural yet accessible position. Believed to date back to the 1600s, and justifiably Grade II* Listed, the property exhibits many fascinating character features with plank and muntin panelling, stone mullion windows, window seats and impressive fireplaces as well as several hidden gems understood to still be in place beneath more modern additions, such as a stone spiral staircase from the sitting room and rumours of a priest hole within the main chimney breast.

Significant improvements have been carried out under the current ownership including the sympathetic addition of a large kitchen/breakfast room extension to the rear, and installation of oil-fired central heating, creating a convenient and comfortable home ideally suited to a modern lifestyle, yet with endless farmhouse appeal.

The front door opens into an expansive entrance hall in which examples of many of the period features mentioned above can be seen and which gives access to the two wonderful reception rooms, both enjoying impressive fireplaces with multi-fuel burners, along with a useful study and ground floor shower room. From both the study and the dining room, steps lead down to the kitchen/breakfast room in which an oil-fired Alpha range cooker, solid oak flooring and attractive, traditional-style fitted units create a farmhouse atmosphere..

The main staircase rises from the dining room to the main landing, from which each of the three well-proportioned bedrooms and the family bathroom can be reached. There is also a secondary staircase ascending from the sitting room directly to the principal bedroom which benefits from ensuite facilities. This duality provides a degree of flexibility which would work well for many lifestyles, in particular families or those expecting regular guests. From the principal bedroom there is access to two large interconnecting attic rooms providing excellent storage with scope to be repurposed, subject to any necessary consents being achieved.

OUTSIDE

The Old Farmhouse benefits from a large, established rear garden which extends to around three quarters of an acre. This is primarily laid to sweeping lawn with well-stocked flower and shrub beds. There is also a paved sun terrace adjoining the house which is a wonderful place for enjoying the distant country views. Also within the rear garden are a stone-built log store and 3 sheds. To the front the property benefits from off road parking for 3 cars in an area shared with the adjoining cottage. There is also a single garage located a short distance from the property with a motorised up-and-over door and a side pedestrian door.
