BELIEVED to date from the 18th century, the property has been the subject of much improvement during recent years.

The previous owners carried out works both internally and externally such as those to the roof / thatch, heating system, kitchen and bathrooms.

However, the current vendors have made further improvements themselves and created a welcoming and characterful home ideal for those who like the idea of a period property but do not wish to have too much work to do.

The main farmhouse has a traditional cross passage hall which is unusually spacious, with room for a bench or settle, or equally usable as a study area.

A door also opens to the rear into one of the useful porches which you are likely to use on a day to day basis.

To one side is a good size downstairs shower-room / cloakroom and this has scope to be rearranged into a separate utility room if you prefer.

As you often find with properties of this style, there are two staircases. The first is located off the characterful sitting room, with its large inglenook fireplace and feature bread ovens.

On the first floor there are five good size bedrooms. The house benefits from a great deal of fitted storage throughout and the master bedroom is no exception with copious fitted wardrobes and storage cupboards.
