THE PROPERTY

AN HISTORIC FARMHOUSE OF SIGNIFICANT ARCHITECTURAL INTEREST TOGETHER WITH A NUMBER OF FINE PERIOD OUTBUILDINGS SET IN APPROXIMATELY 10.8 ACRES...... Misbrooks Farm is a magnificent Grade II listed farmhouse dating back many centuries with its origins, according to a report carried out by the Domestic Building Research Group of Surrey, to circa 1500. The farmhouse was originally constructed as a four bay open hall house and for the buyer seeking the archetypal English timber framed period farmhouse, the extent of original features throughout this beautiful building are unlikely to disappoint. The farmhouse has evolved over the centuries and as can been seen from the floorplan, the accommodation is both extensive and versatile and whilst complex in its layout, has a wonderful charm so typical of this period of English architecture. The property would benefit from sympathetic restoration/ conservation and is available for the first time since the current family purchased the property back in 1974. The majority of the rooms have a reasonable to good standing height and there are, as one would expect extensive exposed beams throughout. There are many interesting and noteworthy points throughout this wonderful period home, including a rather unique enclosed central courtyard, an impressive Horsham stone roof to part of the western and northern section of the roof, a bake house and a handsome oak staircase. A copy of the Domestic Research Buildings Research Group report on the property can be obtained if required. Located close by to the farmhouse are a collection of period outbuildings, including a fine timber barn, with the main section of the barn rising up to the rafters together with adjacent garaging, store rooms and workshop. Other outbuildings include two quaint period buildings; an old granary and a former cart shed which forms an attractive feature in the west facing garden. The grounds, which extend to approximately 10.8 acres consist of a large grazing field located just over to the south side of the Misbrook stream and is adjacent to mature woodland. The gardens are a delightful feature of Misbrooks Farm, extending principally to the south and west of the property - very much in the style of the English country garden. Located to the east of the farmhouse is an all-weather tennis court and the drive, which leads from the north side adjacent to the outbuildings and barn provides parking and turning for several vehicles. An established orchard is located to the east of the tennis court. Please note there is a further parcel of land to the east and adjacent to Misbrooks Farm of about 10.7 acres which is also available for purchase in addition to the farmhouse.
