THE PROPERTY Cansell Grove Farmhouse is a delightful timber framed period house presenting colour washed rendered elevations under a fully rethatched roof, completed in 2015. The property presents well-proportioned accommodation and is listed Grade II, as being of special architectural or historic interest and has been suggested by an historic buildings consultant to have been built on the site of an original medieval hall with origins of the house dating back to the early 1500's. The farmhouse boasts a wealth of period detail with an abundance of exposed timbers and an attractive inglenook fireplace and over recent years it has been subject to a sympathetic, full restoration and now presents beautiful period house accommodation but with the convenience of modern facilities. The front reception porch leads into the sitting room, which has an impressive inglenook fireplace and a front aspect, door to the first floor stairs and a door leading to the dining hall, which has windows to the front aspect, access to the cellar and leads to further accommodation with an impressive kitchen/breakfast room beautifully fitted with a wide range of base and eye level units, granite work surfaces and a matching island, a two oven Aga, integrated Neff double oven & induction hob, Bosch microwave and wine fridge. The double aspect snug has an open fireplace and the adjacent study has a window to the side aspect. Continuing on the ground floor there is a utility room, which is fitted with a single drainer enamel sink with cupboards under, a large storage cupboard, has a window and door to the rear and accesses a shower/cloakroom. On the first floor the landing has three sets of mullion windows to the front aspect, a linen cupboard and leads to four bedrooms, three of which are double rooms and all bedrooms have built-in or fitted wardrobes. The family bathroom has a panel bath, a separate large shower cubicle, twin bowl basins, low level wc and a front aspect. OUTSIDE Cansell Grove Farmhouse enjoys gardens to its front, side and rear aspects with areas of formal lawn, many mature shrubs and trees and an attractive flint wall bordering its front boundary. To the rear there are further areas of lawn and a gravel driveway capable of standing many vehicles, leading to a detached double garage with twin up and over doors and a side courtesy door. There are garden store sheds and a useful brick & flint studio measuring 14'8 x 12'3, which has power, light and a wood burning stove and would be ideal as a home office or for many other uses.
