Property Description

It is not often the opportunity exists to become the proud owner of a Grade II listed country farmhouse that has most unusual development potential. This is just what you have available at this property which is situated on the edge of the village of Barham. Turning into the driveway of this charming early 18th century farmhouse, you are immediately struck by the attractive exterior. This is enhanced even more as you walk through the gorgeous old wood front door into the welcoming hall with its beamed ceiling, wood flooring and large inglenook fireplace. The elegant lounge also has beams and an inglenook fireplace with a log burner that you can sit around on a cold winter's evening. There are also french doors to a terrace and the wonderful rear garden. There is a utility room with steps down to the cellar that is kept at the perfect temperature to safely store wines as well as being used for storage of other items, and a fitted kitchen with a beamed and partially vaulted ceiling. This leads through to the lovely sun room with a three sided views over the courtyard and garden, making it a charming sitting and/or dining area. You will also find a very good sized separate reception/dining room that could be adapted into a further bedroom if required. However in the corner of the dining room there is an alcove that was once a doorway to an additional part of the property that was subsequently demolished. But plans have now been passed that would enable a two storey replacement building to be constructed on the exact site of the old building and this would provide additional living accommodation including two or three bedrooms, bathrooms and extra reception rooms. Currently upstairs off the L shaped galleried landing you will find two delightful double bedrooms with bespoke fitted cupboards and en suite bathrooms as well as access to the partially boarded loft. Outside there is a driveway that goes behind the house and provides plenty of off road parking. It leads to a number of outbuildings including showroom display areas that could always be used as garages or be created into offices, hobby rooms, workshops, a gym or games room/bar.

What the Owner says:
“The property has been in our family since 1962 and we have always loved the warm and friendly atmosphere and the tranquility. We have enjoyed being able to have our business at home and therefore if anyone in the future wants to run a business from here they will be able to do so. Sometime ago we discovered that an additional building had once been attached to our house so we were able to get planning permission to replace it but otherwise it probably wouldn't have been possible to extend a Grade II listed building. At one stage we thought about developing the other building projects ourselves but thought it would be a bit too much at our time of life and felt this was something to hand on to the next owners. Barham is a very friendly village with an historic church and a modernised and extended village hall that offers a variety of activities and facilities. These include two large halls, a conference/meeting room and a post office as well as a useful village shop run by volunteers that sells everything you need from light bulbs to specialist local wines and homemade bread and caskes to fresh meat. There is an excellent pub/restaurant nearby, a well respected village school and an active tennis and bowls club. In the nearby village of Bridge you will find a cricket club and also a variety of shops including a small supermarket, a health food shop and a hair and beauty salon".
