Set back from the road in an elevated position and with gardens backing on to fields, The Old Farmhouse enjoys open views to the front and the rear. Constructed of stone and brick, with some render, below a stone slate pitched roof, the property is GII Listed. Believed to have origins dating to the 1670's it was extended in the late 18th century and, having further evolved over the years, it has been well maintained and updated in many areas by the current owners. The property is further greatly enhanced with the recent addition of a substantial detached oak frame outbuilding.
Retaining a wealth of character and period features, The Old Farmhouse lends itself well to family living. In what is thought to be the oldest part of the house is a sitting room with large inglenook fireplace and wood burner and the dining room with flag stones and exposed timbers. The double aspect drawing room has French doors to the garden, a fireplace, also with wood burner, and leads to the study which, with fitted shelving and cupboards, also has access to the garden. The kitchen, in the Victorian part of the house, has a Stoves electric oven with gas hob fitted in a chimney breast, oak work surfaces and fitted units. The utility room with butlers sink also accommodates the boiler and hot water tank, making it ideal for laundry.
On the first floor are the master bedroom with en suite shower room, three further bedrooms and a family bathroom. Behind a door, stairs from the landing lead up to a further attic bedroom which, with restricted head height, can be used as occasional bedroom or for children/teenagers and accessed from bedroom 4, another attic room currently serves as teenagers den.
Outbuildings and gardens:
Built by the current owners in 2012 is the impressive detached oak frame, timber clad outbuilding. There is a double garage and large workshop with utility room and WC. With central heating and plumbing connected it offers scope for many uses from home office, games room, gym or indeed more extensive ancillary accommodation, (subject to relevant consents). On the first floor and accessed by external steps is a spacious, independent guest bedroom with en suite shower room.
Attached to the rear of the house is a Victorian wash room, still with copper basin, is used as a pantry and useful storage. An open lean-to outbuilding is attached to the delightful garden room which with beautiful views opens onto the decking area.
The partly walled rear gardens are enclosed with attractive cottage garden style flower beds. A gate leads to the parking area and a further enclosed lawn area lends itself to children's play area. With in-out drive there is ample parking to the front of the property.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
