Nestling on the fringes of the village, Lower Court Farm is a quintessential Grade II listed country property of stone construction and is believed to have originated from the 16th century with further additions during the 18th century.
Surrounded by woodland and rolling countryside the property has been in the same family for 46 years and was once a working farm.
The current accommodation is as one would expect of a substantial traditional farmhouse. It offers generous space for everyday family living in the kitchen/breakfast room and sitting room with the more formal entertaining space in the dining and drawing rooms. There are 4 good size bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor. A staircase leads to the second floor where there are a further 3 rooms.
The property does require modernisation and careful consideration will be required to ensure that, if any alterations are planned, they are sympathetic to the property and its unique surroundings. The separate stone barn and outbuildings offer further potential to create ancillary accommodation, all of which will be subject to the necessary planning permissions.
The property is approached to the side via a driveway that leads to a large parking area beyond the main house, giving access to the outbuildings and gardens.
GROUNDS & GARDENS
The garden is enchanting and totally unique. First impressions are of a well laid out formal garden with mature shrubs and trees, a sunken walled garden and sheltered kitchen garden, greenhouses and stone stores. As one explores, you will find, beyond the outbuildings an Arboretum, which was designed and planted by the current owners and is now a true delight.
The 10.5 acre field is directly opposite the property at the end of the driveway.
