5 Bedroom Farm House For Sale

Sowerbys are delighted to present the stunning Grade II Listed Manor Farmhouse, believed to date back to 1596. Displaying an outstanding original Tudor frame structure with Georgian and early 20th century extensions, this beautiful home is being offered for sale with no upward chain. Set back from the road behind a chalk boundary wall, the property exudes character, with exposed beams and timbers, an inglenook fireplace, stunning floorboards and ledge and brace doors being sympathetically combined with modern comforts such as a handmade fitted kitchen and contemporary shower room. We highly recommend that one must view this property early to avoid any disappointment.

Approaching the property, as you drive through the wooden double gates the superbly positioned Manor Farmhouse reveals itself and will take your breath away. Although there is a central front entrance door, the more natural access into the property is to the side, through an impressive oak door. The spacious entrance hall opens to a spectacular open plan sitting room and library, which offer an example of the abundant characterful features found throughout the property. With wide floorboards, an outstanding inglenook fireplace, and original beams and timbers, this beautiful space offers a wealth of possibilities, but feels at once cosy and relaxing, whether you are sitting in front of the wood-burner or enjoying a book next to the large mullioned window which overlooks the garden. The dining room and the snug are both well proportioned rooms, and incredibly versatile. With dual aspect windows and original terracotta tiled flooring to the dining room and another log-burner in the snug, the two adjoining rooms are perfect for entertaining friends and family. As one might expect, the kitchen is another sociable space, with a large central island topped with oak worksurface. Fitted with solid oak cabinets in a shaker style, a Rangemaster cooker, and Silestone worktops, and with appliances hidden away in the adjacent utility room, this kitchen is perfect for the avid cook. Completing the ground floor space is a WC and access to a cellar.
There are two staircases to the upper level, one believed to have been the servants' access in days gone by. The landing, just like the ground floor, displays wonderful beams and allows further access up to the eaves study and bedroom. On the first floor you will find four double bedrooms, again displaying many period features, a family bathroom and a shower room. The guest bedroom benefits from an en-suite shower room whilst the fourth bedroom is currently arranged as a study.
The very top floor is a demonstration of character taken to another level. Displaying oak beams and floorboards this split room is elegant and really showcases the impressive structure of the original building. The spacious landing has been used as another study space and a further door gives access to bedroom five.
The outside space has been designed to be of low maintenance. The gravelled front driveway leading to the carport provides ample off street parking space. The front garden is a good size, with the property being well positioned away from the road, and includes a patio, large lawned area, a greenhouse, mature trees, and attractive flower borders. To the rear of the property is another generous lawned garden, which is fully enclosed and private, with a vegetable plot. A further patio to the rear of the property means there is always somewhere to sit and enjoy these lovely gardens, whatever the time of day.
