Old Manor Farm is a very attractive Grade II Listed farmhouse dating from the late 17th Century. The interior retains many period features including an impressive inglenook fireplace, other fireplaces, a bread oven, exposed beams, flagstones and a lovely 3 storey oak staircase. The accommodation which extends to just over 3000 sq. ft. is beautifully presented and comprises 3 good sized reception rooms, a charming kitchen fitted with an electric Aga, a separate Rangemaster cooker and an integrated dishwasher. Adjoining the kitchen is the breakfast room which has a wood burning stove and 2 sets of doors opening on to a paved courtyard. On the 1st floor are 3 double bedrooms, a large en-suite shower/dressing room and a family bathroom. On the 2nd floor are 2 further double bedrooms with vaulted ceilings and another bathroom. A gravelled drive leads to a large car parking area to the side of the house and a large stone built single garage/garden store with a lean-too log store and further storage area alongside. The pretty front garden comprises an area of lawn with flower and herbaceous borders. There is a small courtyard area to the rear of the house and a back door opens into a rear hall/boiler room. The field is separated from the house by the narrow country lane and contains a pond, a vegetable area and a plantation of trees. Old Manor Farm is a lovely family house with much architectural merit in a rural yet convenient location not far from good country town amenities.
