Few properties have the ability to stir emotion before one even takes a step over the threshold, however, set in this rural location, bordering onto rolling open fields with the most beautiful views is this much loved substantial detached family home. Dating back to early 16th century, with later additions and offering an abundance of stunning features throughout, in keeping with a home of this age, making the perfect home for those who love nostalgia and character. It would be easy to lose yourself in the many rooms, upstairs and down, and with the addition of the "GRANARY" which is currently unconverted spanning the entire front of the property which could be suitable for conversion into a further living space or annex for independent living (subject to the necessary consents). Set within private pleasant country gardens, plus orchard, private woodland and collection of period outbuildings, including an interesting grade listed potato store, stables and further useful areas. This superb property is sure to bring back anyone's childhood memories of playing hide-and-seek! Offering great kerb appeal, this characterful home briefly comprises four reception rooms, kitchen, pantries, cellars, six bedrooms, house bathroom and the granary. Outside and to the front, there is a gate leading to a driveway, providing ample off-street parking and stunning flat English country gardens with an abundance of flowers, trees, shrubbery - perfect for play like football or badminton!
The current owners have enjoyed this beautiful farmhouse since purchasing in 1975. The farm field adjoining the home has friendly horses, sheep or donkeys which often come up to the wall for a chat. The small gate in this adjoining wall has to be retained, as the end cottage has access through for oil delivery. The old part of this home can be found at the front, as you go down the stone flagged passageway, you can see the old recess where the front door had been and if you open the cupboard you see the old window which is Grade II listed. The house is heated by oil, which we have been informed recently cost approximately £170 a month to keep the house warm and toasty.
