Home Farm House is a very attractive and well-appointed detached former farmhouse refurbished to a very high standard and enjoying excellent garaging facilities and outbuildings. As the name implies the property was formerly the farmhouse for Home Farm which closed in the late 1960's. It is of period origins and was understood to be subject to major fire about 120 years ago. The farmhouse was then partially rebuilt during the Victorian/Edwardian era, having main walls of brick and solid stone under pitched slate roofs.
Under the current ownership since 2007 it has been subject to substantial and sympathetic refurbishment and enlargement all to a very high standard. It was largely carried out by a well-known and respected builder.
The many excellent improvements included re-wiring, re-plumbing, new ceilings, installation of oil central heating, new kitchen and new bathrooms, part window replacement with double glazed units, installation of an oil-fired Aga, the building of a large UPVC conservatory, damp proofing, a security alarm system, re-decoration and new floor coverings. The former attached barn was also converted to provide additional living accommodation and a substantial detached double garage/workshop of cavity construction was also built. There has been extensive landscaping and ground works as well.
Character features include stripped pine, feature inglenook stone fireplace, flagstone flooring, vaulted ceiling with exposed 'A' frames, cottage doors, stripped pine floorboards and cast iron fireplaces. The accommodation is well presented and enjoys a sunny south facing rear aspect. There are delightful views along the village street and surrounding countryside.
Further features include excellent off road parking, excellent garaging and outbuildings which offer potential for conversion to provide additional accommodation/annexe etc, subject to any necessary planning permissions and well stocked south facing gardens.
