  • Bedrooms: 6
A handsome period house of rare architectural quality and beautifully presented family accommodation. In addition to the wonderful principal house, the property comprises formal gardens, woodland and productive pastureland.

Grade II Listed, the property dates from around 1700. The property was described in a 1946 edition of Country Life as 'distinguished architecturally, standing back at this corner of the Green, a late Stuart house with hipped roofs and dormers, and its windows have kept the cross bars that preceded the introduction of sashes. Stone steps lead up to its front door, which is set under an arched hood. Inside there is a contemporary oak staircase.' The property originally formed part of the Holbech Family's Farnborough Hall Estate.

The property provides elegant and spacious accommodation over three floors together with a basement and has abundant original period features throughout. The property has been sympathetically and painstakingly restored by the current owners making it a very special and desirable family home.
