Old Parsonage Farmhouse is a particularly appealing and distinctive village house. It is listed Grade ll and is believed to date from the late 17th century together with a more recent extension which is currently a self-contained annexe. Original features include some high ceilings, fine open fireplaces and flagstone floors. The house will benefit from updating. It offers adaptable accommodation as the annexe could easily be incorporated within the house.

A five bar gate opens to the gravel driveway to the west side of the house providing direct access to the integral garage and parking. An attractive brick wall fronting the road has a pedestrian gate which leads to the porch and front door. The main garden lies to the rear of the house with a paved terrace and borders, an ornamental pond and lawn interspersed with trees. The terrace continues around to the east side of the house with further beds, pergola and lawn, mainly bounded to the rear by hedging and with a young beech hedge/fencing to the front. Summerhouse.

Greenhouse. Old garden shed. Oil tank. To the far end of the driveway is a substantial timber outbuilding currently used for storage and incorporates three former stables. There is a small area of paddock adjacent to the east side of the garden.

Services

Mains electricity and water. Private drainage. Oil-fired boiler.

Note:

An adjacent field and former stable yard of about 4.9 acres

(1.98 ha) are available by separate negotiation.
