A Grade II listed 16th Century farmhouse (formerly a hall house) is the principal residence of this well tended grass farm of approximately 77 acres. There is also a detached period barn, which is also Grade II listed and of similar age for which planning consent has been granted for conversion into a two bedroom dwelling. The principal house has been carefully enhanced and updated to provide a comfortable family home with excellent room sizes and, unusually for a period house, plenty of natural light. Many wonderful original features remain including two fine inglenook fireplaces, one with an oak bressumer spanning approximately 8ft. In the dining room there is some most unusual original panelling, and of course throughout the property a wealth of exposed timbers. On the first floor the current arrangement gives three large double bedrooms, and there is an extremely large landing which is used as an occasional bedroom, which is capable of being partitioned. A pull-down ladder leads to an extensive loft, part of which has been converted into a room. This also offers considerable scope subject to planning and listed building consent. The kitchen has recently been replaced and has Shaker style units, and the leaded light windows have secondary glazing. There is oil fired central heating with a recently replaced oil tank. Immediately surrounding the house is a beautiful mature garden of approximately one acre in which are two natural ponds. Immediately to the South of the house is a "home paddock" of approximately 5 acres. The rest of the land amounting to 72 acres lies principally to the South and East of the house, and is in a useful parcel with easy access from and frontage to Partridge Lane.
