A Grade II Listed detached former farmhouse, dating back to the 17th Century and enjoying an idyllic village edge location.
The spacious, adaptable accommodation requires some investment and modernisation, but offers the opportunity to create generous, family sized accommodation and offers some annexe potential too.
The ground floor has an entrance hall opening to the large dining space and the kitchen with walk-in pantry and boiler room. From the dining room a few steps lead to a hallway and to the large sitting room with stunning inglenook fireplace. There is a spacious drawing room too.
There are two staircases to the first floor, which does offer some potential to self contain an area for multi-generational living perhaps, or it blends well for family living. There are six bedrooms, one with an en suite and a family bathroom.
The house is approached by a stone chipped driveway providing off road parking for many vehicles and leading to the detached triple garage. The delightful, well tended gardens are a real feature and extend to the south and east.
To the north of the house there is a large wildlife pond and the land extends to the side and further to the south including access to a track at the far end, enabling separate vehicular access.
There is a further wildlife pond towards the eastern side which is surrounded by woodland and a haven for wildlife. In addition there is a small, fast flowing stream which runs along the eastern boundary and there is also a stream on the northern boundary.
Overall the land extends to 7.93 acres.
