Yew Tree Farmhouse is a charming and characterful former farmhouse, Listed as being of Architectural and Historic Importance Grade II. Although it is thought that the origins of the property date back many hundred years, the present building is understood to date from the late 18th Century. The building has a mix of colourwashed and natural stone elevations under thatched and tiled roofs and the accommodation has a versatile and flexible layout enabling many of the rooms to be used in a variety of ways to suit individual requirements. Two of the bedrooms together with a bathroom and utility room - which could be used as a separate kitchen - are on the ground floor and could easily be used as an annexe for a dependent relative, teenagers or guest space, or for someone working from home. It might also be possible to use this area as a holiday cottage to provide income if so desired as this part of the house has its own heating and electrical systems and its own front door. The house has light and bright rooms, many of which are double aspect and many windows, especially in the older part of the house, are of the double hung sash casement type and both the sitting room and drawing room have French casements to the charming west facing walled garden. Period features abound, including lovely flagstone floors in the dining room and reception hall, beamed ceilings in the dining room and drawing room and large stone fireplaces in the drawing room and dining room where there is also a smoking chamber to one side. Inset into the wall is an arched timber frame of an old door. Adjoining the dining room is a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room, triple aspect with a good range of fitted cupboards. On the first floor there is a landing with window overlooking the walled garden, three good sized double bedrooms and a freshly re-fitted bathroom with bath and shower cubicle. The house has full oil fired central heating with two independent boilers and there are some sealed unit double glazed windows in the ground floor bedroom wing of the house. Yew Tree Farmhouse is a charming house, full of character yet with accommodation suitable for family life in the 21st Century, and although dating from the 18th Century, ceiling heights are excellent in all parts of the building.
A handsome pair of stone pillars and wrought iron entrance gates open to a gravelled drive which leads up through sweeps of lawn interspersed with a variety of established trees including silver birch, walnut and fruit trees. The driveway leads to a gravelled parking and turning area. There is a workshop with light and power connected and a single garage with timber doors. The garden is well screened from the road by a stone wall with sweeps of lawn, trees, herbaceous borders and mature shrubs. In all the property extends to approximately two thirds of an acre.
