A substantial period farmhouse of immense character and charm having been beautifully restored and presented and set in enchanting gardens

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 enhance the partly rendered and stone elevations under a thatched roof. A small walled garden with path leads to a formal entrance into the main hallway with staircase with cupboard under leading to a galleried landing. Stairs lead down from the hall into the dining room which has a beamed ceiling and large inglenook fireplace with an AGA electric stove. A canopy porch has a fine panelled and studded door which leads from the garden into a further hallway where there is a cloakroom and doors leading down to the drawing room which has a magnificent inglenook fireplace with an AGA electric stove, massive Bressumer beam and smoking chamber. There is a study directly off the drawing room. The kitchen has a range of bespoke oak cupboards topped with quartz work surfaces and centred around an island. There is a three oven electric AGA eR7, a larder cupboard with two integrated Miele fridges, a Miele induction hob with oven below and a pantry. Steps lead up to a breakfast area which leads to the family sitting room with door to the garden and an inglenook fireplace with an AGA electric stove. Beyond lies a useful boot room/utility with a range of fitted cupboards and quartz work top, a cloakroom, a shelved storeroom and stairs that lead up to the study / bedroom six.

There are six spacious bedrooms, two en suite, a family bathroom and a further Jack and Jill en suite shared between study/bedroom six and the adjoining bedroom. The principal bedroom is particularly light, has wooden flooring, fitted wardrobes and a beautifully fitted bathroom.
