The charming Elizabethan house and the farm buildings nestle peacefully at the end of a long private drive in the centre of the farm, sheltered by a horseshoe of woodland to the north.
The detached brick, stone and timber farmhouse dates from the 16th Century and has been extensively refurbished by the current owners. The formal and informal gardens have been established in the last thirty years. They form a beautiful setting for this attractive, well maintained property with an abundance of topiary, yew and box hedging. Details of the accommodation are set out in the floor plans. In addition there are cellars with external access and large attics at each end of the house.
The traditional farm buildings with potential for alternative uses (subject to planning), lie to the west of the farmhouse. These comprise:
Grade II Listed Hop Kilns
Brick, timber and clay tiled range of Former Stables 42’ x 16’ (12.80 m x 4.87m) with part loft over.
Adjoining pole and G.I. open fronted garaging and store 41’ x 27’ (12.49m x 8.22m)
The more modern buildings comprise:
6 bay steel and fibre cement roofed former Silage Barn and lean-to storage barn 90’ x 68’ (27.43m x 20.72m).

Pole and G.I. Barn 53’ x 30’ (16.15m x 9.14m)
The undulating free-draining land comprises well proportioned enclosures ideal for modern arable farming techniques. The soils are mainly Grade 3 being of the Bromyard series on the southern part of the farm and Munslow series to the north roughly separated by the stream running through the holding. The majority of the land has been cropped with wheat, oiseed rape and maize in recent years. The fields are well serviced by the main entrance drive or a series of tracks running through the farm.
15 acres o broadleaf tree plantations have been established by the owners since 1990. These together with a valley and established hedgerows add to the sporting and amenity potential of the farm.
In all the property extends to about 270.8 acres (109.7 hectares).
