An elegant unlisted period house, in need of updating, with lovely southerly views

The property

Stone built in a lovely mellow stone with a slate roof, Old Manor Farmhouse sits in a private and elevated ‘edge of village’ location. The house is unlisted, but has many charming period features.

The front door opens into a 37-foot long sitting room with beautiful exposed beams, oak flooring, mullion windows and a working stone fireplace. Beside the stairs, there is a cloakroom and, beyond, a dining room, again with exposed beams and mullion windows. Running from the dining room is a utility room, which houses the boiler and a small store cupboard. To the rear of the house, and accessed via the dining room, is a breakfast kitchen extension. This has a triple aspect, a range cooker, granite work surfaces and a breakfast island as well as a Edinburgh sink.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms, each with their own unique views, and a family bathroom with both a bath and separate shower.

Outside

Old Manor Farmhouse lies at the eastern end of the hamlet. Immediately adjacent to the road is a parking area in front and alongside a double garage, providing off-street parking for several cars. Beyond the garage is a run of 3 store rooms.The garden encircles the house and is mainly set to lawn with mature trees, hedges and shrubs providing privacy, vibrancy and colour.
