A large period farmhouse set in grounds of approaching four acres which offers accommodation in excess of 5,000 sq. ft.

This very attractive stone built period farmhouse has been partially renovated with high quality fixtures and fittings that include oak doors and windows, an oak staircase, a fitted kitchen with a splendid granite island and bath and shower rooms with very stylish suites. In addition much of the house has been replastered, many of the beams have been sandblasted and treated and floors have been laid, however at present these works are incomplete. The house sits within informal gardens, with a large terrace, a large pond, a variety of mature trees and shrubs and a number of outbuildings, that in total measures just over an acre. In addition is an adjacent moated paddock of approximately 2.7 acres, which is a scheduled ancient monument.



Ground Floor Accommodation:

Entrance hall, drawing room, sitting room, dining room, family room, study, kitchen/breakfast room and a cloakroom.

First Floor Accommodation:

A large master bedroom suite with dressing room and a very large bathroom, guest bedroom with an en-suite shower room, two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.


Attached to the house is a former cowshed that offers the opportunity of forming more living space, a triple garage with two stores and an additional outbuilding with accommodation on two floors.


A driveway passes a large pond, with a variety of mature trees around its edge, to an area of hard-standing adjacent to the garages. The gardens extend all around the house and on the south east side of the house is a large stone terrace. A driveway that leads to property beyond passes between the gardens and the moated paddock. This moated site has well documented associations with the medieval deer park extending back to the 14th century. It is essentially undamaged and retains considerable archaeological potential for the recovery of evidence of building foundations within the interior.
