Property This handsome Grade II Listed property has been occupied by the same family for over 60 years. Once an active, working farm, it boasts generous accommodation both on the ground and first floors, along with a wealth of character, with sash windows, several open fireplaces and even the original servant bells still in residence. By its own admission this impressive home now requires modernisation throughout, but presents a fantastic scope and opportunity for a potential buyer.
Overall there are five large reception rooms, all with their own charm, along with a long hallway and double doors to the entrance lobby. This prominent former farmhouse offers six sizable bedrooms, one of which was previously a servants quarters in years gone by, accessed by a separate steep staircase in the sitting room, with further quarters in what is now used as loft space.
Outside Double gates to the side of Falcon House open onto a large gravel driveway and potting shed, with a secure gate and passage leading to a mature lawn, which is bordered by an array of shrubs and high wall surround, along with four garden storage outbuildings.
An arched wooden doorway within the wall opens to an expanse of wild gardens whilst a pathway weaves through a wooded area to the derelict cottage (which requires full restoration) and large pond.
Wire fencing creates the boundary between the grounds of the house and approximate 7.4 acres of meadow at the rear, which provides great open views towards the old railway line on the western boundary.
A track from the land, leads back towards the house past four temporary breeze block store sheds, to various other barns and outbuildings, which were in use when the farm was operational. The largest of barns is located to the front boundary and measures 54m x 6m.
