A unique village home of rare character completely unspoilt and presented with immaculate taste and detail throughout. A paddock of approximately 3 acres is available by separate negotiations. Guide price in excess of £50,000.
The renovation of The Old Farm has been undertaken over an extended period by our Clients, and the result is the creation of an atmospheric family home. Further development of the outbuildings could be undertaken to provide additional accommodation, home office, annexe or hobby room.
The centrally heated accommodation which is particularly well laid out is entered through an entrance hall with cloakroom off, three principal reception rooms including a large sitting room, a dining room and a snug which is situated off the dining kitchen. The kitchen has been recently refitted with a range of high quality handmade cabinets, Aga and a large island unit with granite work and preparation surfaces. There is a large utility/boot room conveniently situated adjacent.
A staircase and landing gives access to five bedrooms, the master bedroom having a high quality en-suite. Completing the second floor is a very well fitted family bathroom.
The Old Farm offers a workshop, store, six stables, tack room and additional storage. The Old Farm is approached by a driveway with a small turnout paddock to the left with post and rail fencing. A cobbled driveway provides ample car standing space and is enclosed by an attractive range of outbuildings with a lawned area to the front. The rear garden is principally laid to lawn with fruit trees and private entertaining areas.
