With one part of this farmhouse dating back to the 15th century and the other part dating back to the 16th century, it's safe to say that this detached grade II listed home has an abundance of character. From the road this property has an imposing yet attractive façade, the high reaching octagonal chimneys are almost like a raised hand that's just demanding your attention. The outside sets the scene perfectly for what welcomes you on the inside, throughout the property there are original features such as exposed timbers, original oak floorboards, fireplaces and even two original bread ovens. The property is spread over three floors and offers just under 3000 square feet of accommodation. On the ground floor you have the luxury of three good size reception rooms in the form of a main sitting room, a snug and a formal dining room. Additionally, you have a study/office space, downstairs WC and a kitchen. The kitchen really is an exceptional size room with a high ceiling, large inglenook fireplace, bundles of storage cupboards and an island that comfortably seats 10 people around it, this is an embodiment of the saying "the kitchen is the hub of the home". On the first floor you will find four bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room, three of the bedrooms are generous doubles with one being a single that has a built in wardrobe. The top floor is accessed via a spiral staircase and is where the master bedroom is found along with a modern en suite bathroom. The property had planning permission (now expired) to convert a stable into a two bedroom detached annexe, which potentially could be reapplied for should any oncoming purchaser require an annexe.

The property sits on a plot of approximately 0.52 acres and has panoramic field views.
