It is becoming increasingly rare to find many Local Market homes that nestle in their own land and enjoy unspoilt views across open countryside. Not only does this beautiful listed farmhouse provide this and more, it does so within an estate of approximately 30 vergees (just under 12.5 acres) and enjoys a unique degree of privacy as a result. Further land encompassing over 32 vergees (approximately 13.5 acres) is available by separate negotiation. Modernised and extended over time, it offers flexible accommodation either as one large house or a property with a wing, whilst there is undoubted scope to develop the property further, subject to the necessary permissions. It also offers a heated swimming pool, triple garage and a number of outbuildings around its central courtyard. A once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire and develop a substantial and unrivalled country estate.
PRECIS OF ACCOMMODATION
During the renovation process, much care was taken to ensure the heart, soul and character of the property was retained throughout. The outcome is a beautiful historical home that offers a mix of period style reception rooms with stunning inglenook fireplaces, along with well-proportioned rooms resplendent with beamed ceilings, and a superb tourelle staircase.
The old house to one side provides further superb accommodation, again with a substantial rebuilt granite fireplace, minstrels gallery, cobbled floor and a games room with vaulted ceiling.
Finally, the outbuildings include a triple garage, a detached two storey granite barn together with a further large agricultural barn, and a large vine house at the rear alongside of the heated pool and large wildlife pond.

Beyond the vine house are enclosed soft fruit cages with vegetable garden beyond and further lawned gardens stretching down either side.
