Pansthorne Farm House dates back in parts to the 1600's but was substantially extended and improved in early 2000's. Formerly a working farm until the 1980's, the farmhouse was separated from the land and buildings to create this wonderful family home you see today. The accommodation now extends to approximately 2750 sqft split between the main house and attached cottage. The house offers an incredibly versatile layout and could easily be adapted for dual occupancy.
On entering the main house you are welcomed into the entrance porch, which has the original staircase winding up to the first floor. On the ground floor there are three reception rooms and the kitchen/breakfast room. The two main reception rooms form part of the original house with large inglenook fireplaces, exposed timbers & beams. The dining hall was added in 2000, attaching the house to the rear of the cottage. The room has pamment tiled floor and a stunning staircase which leads up to the galleried landing. Adjacent is the kitchen/breakfast room which has a pamment floor, exposed timbers, a built in dresser and a selection of floor cabinets. The is space for a range style cooker, has an inset butlers sink, pue bench and space for a breakfast table. On the first floor are three double rooms and a very good sized single room. The master bedroom benefits from two built in wardrobe cupboards and an en-suite bathroom comprising a modern four piece suite. The family bathroom completes the first floor accommodation.
The attached cottage comprises a one bedroom property which is currently let on a shorthold tenancy achieving 495 per calendar month. Planning permission was granted in 2000 to extended the cottage and this has been activated with no timescales attached. The vendors would consider selling Pansthorne Farm House without the cottage for a fixed price of 399,950.
