Orchard Farm is a beautiful Grade II listed property believed to date from the 18th century. Set in breathtaking grounds of approximately 3.5 acres including sweeping landscaped gardens, stunning secluded pond and stream. The property has been well maintained and greatly improved by the current owners with incredible attention to detail throughout. The main dwelling offers a huge amount of character with period features including impressive inglenook fireplaces and exposed ceiling beams. Beyond the garden terrace the stables have been converted into a comfortable two bedroom fully self-contained cottage. A converted two storey outbuilding is now a useful studio/office which could form additional self-contained accommodation. Leading from the driveway there is a large garage, the drive continues to a yard/parking area with access to a modern fully insulated 2400 sqft workshop/barn. The current owners use this area for hobbies and car garaging however it could be utilised as stabling if preferred.
Mains water, drainage and electricity are connected. Separate oil fired boilers provide central heating to the main house and annexe. Council tax band F.
