Nestled in the heart of this charming village, this property enjoys a serene position overlooking Market Lane.

The property itself comprises a Grade II listed farmhouse, believed to date back to the 1600s and is of oak timber frame construction, showcasing numerous period features that exude charm and character. Spanning 2,000 square feet, the accommodation is well-appointed and generously proportioned, with the potential of dual living and annexe accommodation. In recent years, the current owners have diligently maintained the property, with scheduled works carried out, notably including re-roofing done approximately four years ago and the installation of a new oil-fired central heating boiler in 2017 and partial re-wire of the property in 2018. Attention is also drawn to the sixteen solar panels, benefiting from a feed-in tariff, generating approximately 0.56 pence per kilowatt, with ten years still remaining on the fixed tariff.

The gardens and grounds themselves are a standout feature. Essentially, the overall plot encompasses 2.5 acres, with formal gardens adjoining the rear of the farmhouse. They extend to a small meadow with a pond, outbuildings and solar panels in the distance. A five-bar gate leads to a larger meadow, bordered by established trees and hedgerows, offering a delightful rural view over the unspoilt countryside.
