The combination of property, land, annex facility/purpose built office, stabling and garaging all provide great flexibility for the family or generational living. There is also the ability to work from home and enjoy walks and rural pursuits for small animals and horses with secure paddocks and direct access in the lane for hacking onto a network of bridleways for several miles along the Greensand Ridge and into Maulden Woods, s Special Site of Scientific Interest - avoiding the need to cross any roads. Dating from the 17th century and Grade Two listed with a recent addition, the house offers ample living space and with two staircases can offer a flexible layout for an extended family or teenage suite. The accommodation comprises the original farmhouse which has character features such as fireplaces and exposed beam-work with a double storey extension now providing a triple aspect family room enjoying views over to the stables, garden and paddocks with 2 further living rooms, farmhouse kitchen and 5 bedrooms. Set in Green End, which houses a handful of semi-rural homes bordering Maulden Woods, the property is approached along the lane and enjoys a south westerly facing aspect. With its own remote controlled gated entrance, the house enjoys a high degree of privacy and protection in its own grounds. The gardens are laid around the property along with a driveway providing ample parking, double "barn" garage, summer gazebo, large brick summer house with lovely views, three stables and hay store which all lead to post and railed paddocks. Of particular note is the addition, by the owners, of a purpose-built games room/home office measuring 20' x 18'11 which has power, light, heating and double glazing which lends itself to an annex facility if required, (subject to consent) Only upon viewing can one fully appreciate the flexibility, space, views and lifestyle that Old Woodside Farm offers.
