Full Property Details

The period house at Farthings Farm has well-proportioned accommodation and offers a fantastic opportunity for the new owner to reinstate it to its former glory and a very desirable rural home, with formal gardens and a large wildlife pond.

The property has some fine, original architectural features, which include a large stone fireplace in the drawing room, with an oak mantel beam over, and further fireplaces in the dining room, sitting room and a few of the bedrooms, as well as some feature oak ceiling beams. The house has been let in recent times and is habitable, with a fitted kitchen with an integral oven and hob and a black Aga; two bathrooms with white suites (no shower), and central heating fuelled by LPG gas. However, it would benefit from refurbishment throughout, with remedial works, and Seddons have a Condition Survey Report on file, which is available to view on request.

The residence has garage and storage buildings nearby, a large barn, part divided with stables and loose boxes and beyond, a further block of nine stables, some of which could be used for tack and feed. The pasture extends to approximately 15 acres and is divided into paddocks with post and rail fencing, in need of some repair.

Please see the floorplans of the house and outbuildings and the Seddons' video tour of the whole property to achieve a full picture of the potential offered by this classic equestrian or agricultural smallholding.

Services: mains water and electricity. Septic tank drainage. Private LPG propane gas tank.

AGENT'S NOTES: when viewing Farthings Farm, Seddons will guide viewers around the house and thereafter, they will be free to walk around the garden, outbuildings and land. Please note, this is to be done at the viewer's own risk and viewers must be wary of potential areas of danger, for example the overgrown raised garden beds and risk of nails in planks in the grass; the septic tank with a fragile lid and the obvious dangers of the pond, especially to children.
