An attractive Grade ll listed farmhouse offering five bedroom living accommodation, traditional two storey barn with planning potential (STP), walled garden and just under 5.5 acres of level pasture land. No onward chain

This handsome farmhouse is believed to date back to the 18th century and comes to the market following the vendors decision to downsize. Constructed of Blue Lias stone elevations under a pitched pantile roof the property offers characterful accommodation, good ceiling heights and a pleasing amount of natural light. In brief the accommodation comprises a cross passage hallway with tiled flooring and stairs rising to the first floor. To the left is a large dual aspect sitting room with open fireplace and a second door off the hall leads to a sitting room with fantastic inglenook fireplace containing a log burning stove. Continuing through from the living room is a dining room again with large inglenook fireplace and door off to a conservatory and rear porch. Adjacent is a modern kitchen and utility. Also on this floor is a study and wet room which could be used as an annexe or for accommodating an elderly relative. Outside is ample parking, a traditional thatched two storey barn with alternative use potential, workshop and beautiful walled gardens. Immediately adjoining is just under 5.5 acres of level pasture land, ideal for agricultural, equestrian or other amenity uses.
