This exceptional farmhouse dates back to the mid-16th century and occupies a prominent position overlooking the village green and coat of arms. The house today offers a splendid combination of practical accommodation suited for modern living whilst retaining the elegance and charm in keeping with its historical significance. This Grade II* listed property is approached via a large gravel driveway which provides off-road parking for numerous vehicles which in turn leads onto both a detached timber framed barn incorporating a quadruple bay cartlodge and a detached three bedroom annexe known as 'The Byre'.
The current owners have completed an extensive programme of refurbishment and improvement with meticulous attention to detail throughout, ensuring the property continues to exhibit some of the finest possible examples of the character features shown within.
There is a total of 9 ornate star capped chimneys towering above the peg-tile roof, an array of large inglenook fireplaces with oak bressummers, exposed timbers, original exposed brick flooring and oak mullioned leaded light windows.
The property provides versatile accommodation throughout including a formal drawing room and separate dining room, three/four further reception rooms together with a cloakroom and scullery at ground floor. The AGA kitchen/breakfast room features a bespoke handmade french kitchen with oak cabinetry and a cream four oven AGA. Upstairs are a total of four bedrooms, the master with a roll-top bath on a raised platform and ample fitted wardrobes. There are two further bathrooms, one of which being jack and jill to two of the bedrooms. A further room is accessible via an external staircase and could be utilised as an additional bedroom if required or as a playroom.
THE BYRE A lead covered oak framed walkway connects the main house to 'The Byre' which was created by the current owners in 2003 and now offers a multitude of potential uses including as a home business/office space, granny annexe or guest accommodation. The property has also been successfully run as a holiday let and has previously generated a significant income (further information available upon request).
The Byre has been carefully designed to mirror the construction of the main property and displays a mixture of herringbone brick, exposed timbers and weatherboarding beneath a clay pantile roof and has been finished to a high level of energy efficiency with particularly generous insulation. There is a total of 3 bedrooms, a family bathroom, two reception rooms and a bespoke handcrafted oak kitchen with terracotta tile flooring.
THE BARN A detached weatherboarded timber framed barn with a corrugated tin roof. To the front of the barn is a quadruple bay green oak framed cartlodge providing ample sheltered parking.
