  • Bedrooms: 6
This beautiful and fascinating farmhouse is certainly worthy of its Grade II listing and is believed to date back to the late 16th Century. A thorough yet sympathetic restoration programme, carried out under the supervision of a conservation surveyor, has resulted in a comfortable and spacious home with highly flexible rooms with particularly good reception space. Leaded light windows with some mullions and one particularly ancient wooden mullion enhance the partly rendered and stone elevations under a thatched roof. A canopy porch has a fine panelled and studded front door which leads into the hallway where there is a cloakroom and doors leading down to the drawing room which has a magnificent inglenook fireplace with massive Bressumer beam and smoking chamber. There is a further garden hall/library and a beautifully proportioned dining room with a surprisingly high beamed ceiling and large inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. Steps lead up from the dining room to a further hall with another formal entrance and staircase with cupboard under leading to the galleried landing. The kitchen has a range of traditional Mark Wilkinson cupboards topped with granite work surfaces and centred around an island. There is a two oven plug in electric AGA, a dresser style range of cupboards, a Miele hob with oven below and a pantry. Steps lead up to a breakfast area with original uprights leading to the family sitting room with door to the garden and an inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. Beyond lies a useful boot room/utility with cloakroom, a shelved storeroom and stairs that lead up to the study / bedroom six.

The principal bedroom is particularly light, has wooden flooring, a solar area, range of cupboards and a contemporary style beautifully fitted bathroom. There are six spacious bedrooms, two with an en suite, a family bathroom and a further Jack and Jill en suite shared between study/bedroom six and the adjoining bedroom.
