A great opportunity to acquire this substantial country farmhouse with six double bedrooms (five with ensuite facilities and top floor with kitchenette), annexe (currently arranged as two bedrooms and bathroom which could easily be converted to a self-contained annexe) and a further detached studio/office currently used as a guest bedroom. In brief the accommodation comprises an entrance hall, characterful sitting room with inglenook fireplace, kitchen/breakfast room with walk in pantry and solid fuel Rayburn, opening to conservatory/study, dining room, side conservatory/breakfast room, double bedroom with ensuite, laundry room, store room, large integral garage and two bed annexe. To the first floor are four generous double bedrooms all with ensuite facilities. The second floor has a large open plan bedroom with kitchen space. The property is packed full of charm and character, with the oldest part of the building dating back to the 1600's, offering exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace and many other period features creating a warm and homely feel. The bedrooms are all of an excellent size. The current owners are semi retired and have operated a Bed and Breakfast for the past 15 years but this will also appeal to those looking for multi generational living, due to the layout and possibilities to split the property.
