Far Reaching Views
A Grade II listed former farmhouse dating back to circa 1750 and offering enormous and exciting potential. The property is located in West Woodlands and has six bedrooms, several outbuildings, gardens and a two acre paddock.
The front entrance opens into a hallway with two large, principle reception rooms either side. One of these rooms is currently used as a dining room, which is large enough to easily accommodate a dining table to seat ten people and features dual aspect windows, a beautiful wooden herringbone parquet floor and a decorative mantle. To the other side of the hallway there is a living room with dual aspect stone mullion windows, a woodburning stove, an original recessed curved alcove and large built in bookcase. Further down the hall there is a large drawing room which features a stone open fireplace. The kitchen is fitted with a range of cupboards and has a built in dresser, an oil fired Aga, a central island and space for a large table and chairs. There is a serving hatch through to a smaller room which the present owners use as an office. There is a large laundry room, a boot room, and a boiler room leading to a shower room with a wash hand basin and W/C. A refined wide staircase sweeps upstairs to a galleried landing which is well lit by a velux window.
There are six bedrooms on this floor including the primary bedroom, which is extremely large, has five fitted wardrobes, a double door airing cupboard and overlooks the flowerbeds in the garden below. There is a further double bedroom with views across to the paddock, two bathrooms and a separate W/C. To the front of the house there are two further double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a smaller room currently used as an office which could also be a dressing room, if desired.
Externally there are various outbuildings with huge potential, including a former cowshed and a pigsty plus a farmyard. There are lovely gardens with an abundance of flower beds, trees and shrubs, lawns and a fruit cage. There is in addition a large paddock and parking for numerous vehicles in the farmyard.
