A charming Grade II Listed farmhouse that has been lovingly restored and extended by its current owners and is believed to date back to c.1620–1640 with later Victorian and more recent additions. Up until the 1980's The Old Farmhouse was a working dairy farm owning the land behind, that is now Halls Close. The property has many character features including exposed timber beams reclaimed from Tudor ships, exposed brick and timber walling, inglenook and Victorian fireplaces. The new family room/orangery filled with natural light, compliments well with the integrity of the old building mixing the old and new in harmony. The vendors have used quality fittings and finishes including MInoli tiling, cast iron radiators and Sieman's appliances including a Wi-Fi coffee machine. The space on offer lends itself well to modern family life.
