Property description

This historic 15C former Dairy farmhouse, located in the Conservation Area of Willingham is an attractive timber framed and rendered family home with a long straw thatched roof offering almost 3400 sq ft of accommodation arranged in an L shaped configuration over two floors.

Modern living amenites have been skilfully combined with existing traditional period features such as Sash and Norfolk slider windows, original beams, Pammet floors and beautiful stained glass to create a light and airy home with a sense of history.
The ground floor accommodation flows from a welcoming entrance hall and comprises a spacious Drawing room with tiled floor and attractive fireplace with wood burner, a well-proportioned study and another ante room and generous Dining room with attractive open fireplace. The ground floor accommodation is completed by a spacious Breakfast/Sitting room with Inglenook fireplace with wood burner and natural stone flooring throughout both this and into the large kitchen beyond. The stunning kitchen has a full height atrium style ceiling, which is overlooked by an upper mezzanine and staircase leading up to the first floor. There is a full range of kitchen units and large island unit with granite worktops, an integrated dishwasher, a double Belfast sink and a 4 oven Gas Aga. French doors lead to the paved garden terrace with views to the garden beyond.

Two early 18C staircases at either end of the old house lead up to the first floor landings and further accommodation. Here there is a spacious Master bedroom with attractive fireplace, leading to an ensuite bathroom with freestanding bath and separate walk in shower. There are 3 further interconnecting bedrooms and a staircase leads up from the second landing to the top floor attic. This is currently used for storage, but could easily be a teenage bedroom. The first floor accommodation is completed by a large fourth bedroom with ensuite shower room.
