Swan Green Farmhouse is a charming Grade II Listed family home, dating originally from the 16th century, that retains a wealth of original character and detail, including exposed timber beams, wide oak floorboards, leaded windows, brick flooring and impressive fireplaces.
The accommodation throughout is mostly presented in a traditional style, giving prominence to the period features, while some modernisation would bring the property into 21st century living. A welcoming entrance hall, with cloakroom and useful storage area, leads through to the remainder of the ground floor. This consists of a well-proportioned drawing room with a triple aspect and an inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove, and a formal dining room with an impressive inglenook fireplace. Benefitting from views over the gardens, with access to outside, the kitchen has a two oven Aga and provides room for a breakfast table; access is provided from the kitchen to the pantry/larder, which is also accessed from the inner hall.
There are two generous double bedrooms on the first floor along with the family bathroom, with the principal bedroom featuring an adjoining room, which could be used as a dressing room, and an en suite bathroom. While the second floor has three further bedrooms, one of which is ideal as a study, nestled below the stunning vaulted roof with its timber beams. Connecting these three rooms is a large space which could be utilised as a playroom, sitting room or working space.
