Charming Farmhouse in a lovely edge of village location

Lower Farm is a charming farmhouse in a lovely setting. Whilst the house is in the village Conservation Area, it is not listed. The lane is quiet, with minimal traffic. The principal rooms are well proportioned and have much charm reflecting the property's age. There are two wings which form an attractive lawned courtyard. On one side is a large kitchen-dining room and cosy family room. On the other are two ground-floor bedrooms which are part of a self-contained annexe that may suit a family wanting multi-generational living. The layout is shown on the floor plan.

This property has 7.05 acres of land.

Outside

The house is approached via a gravel drive which provides plenty of parking and access to the double garage. Immediately to the rear of the house are attractive terraces, perfect for alfresco dining and entertaining. Beyond, the gardens are well tended and stocked and in a traditional informal English farmhouse style. The seven acres of land, a particularly alluring feature, are shaped by a valley with a natural spring at the top with a gentle central stream flowing into a pond edged by an orchard of fruit trees. There are good views of beautiful countryside, with abundant wildlife including deer. There is also woodland, with fine sycamore, ash and oak trees.
