Description

The Property

Street Farmhouse is located within the centre of the village and this attractive 17th Century house once served Whatfield as the local Butchers shop. Listed Grade II, the property displays many attractive period features including exposed oak studwork, floorboards and inglenook fireplaces in the dining room and sitting room. Unlike other properties of this nature, the accommodation provides a good deal of natural light as well as ample head height on both floors, where the bedrooms offer attractive views over the gardens. The property was extended in the 19th century to incorporate the dining area/library and the triple aspect AGA kitchen/breakfast room to the rear. In 2012, the current owners commissioned a further addition creating a spectacular garden/family room built with a contemporary edge with full height bi-fold doors leading onto one section of the walled

garden. In the same year, the reed thatched roof was also completely renewed.

Outside

The property forms a prominent part of Whatfield’s street scene and this distinctive house is set well back within its plot of about 0.3 of an acre with a large front lawn and adjacent gravel driveway which leads to a substantial timber frame barn offering extensive storage space. Having power

and light, the barn is currently divided into two distinct areas; principally a workshop/garage (12.5m x 4.88m) and a wood store (4.95m x 3.73m). The main garden sits to the rear of the house which is well maintained and private

with an enclosed paved area accessed via the utility room. A path leads onto the main lawn with raised flower and shrub borders and the boundaries are clearly defined by an attractive red brick wall. The enclosed walled terrace is a

useful addition to the outside space and offers an ideal area for entertaining with access to the modern garden room.
