With lovely, far-reaching views across the adjoining countryside and nestling beside St George's Church, Church Farm is an attractive, Grade II Listed former farmhouse with origins dating back to the seventeenth century and later additions from the twentieth century. Skilfully refurbished by the present owners, the character features of the property have been enhanced by the inclusion of twenty first century energy saving devices such as solar panels, an air source heat pump and double glazed windows, along with under floor heating to the bath and shower rooms. Architectural details such as exposed timbers and inglenook fireplaces are complimented by a sophisticated decorating style, sleek, modern bath and shower rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room, which has a large central island with an induction hob and an electric Aga. Reception rooms are gracious and the snug is cosy, whilst the four bedrooms arranged over the first floor have lovely views either of the surrounding countryside or of the gardens and include the master suite, which has an en-suite wet room, plus a further bedroom on the second floor.
