Kelly Farm is delightful traditional farm which has at its heart a substantial farmhouse with attached annexe.

The farmhouse is privately positioned, surrounded by its own productive farmland and some broadleaved woodland in all amounting to 20 acres. To the East of the farmhouse are a range of versatile modern farm buildings suited to a range of uses (subject to consent where necessary). A further 80 acres of productive pasture is available via separate negotiation.THE FARMHOUSE & ANNEXE
The farmhouse is constructed of stone and cob elevations under a recently replaced natural slate roof. The layout and sizes of the accommodation are illustrated on the attached floor plan.
The house briefly comprises a Farmhouse kitchen, 3 reception rooms, utility, shower room and cloakroom on the ground floor with 6 bedrooms, (master en-suite) and family bathroom on the first floor.
The house has plenty of character with an old inglenook fireplace in the kitchen housing an oil fired Stanley. There are exposed beams throughout the property and further feature fireplaces in both the sitting and living rooms. The accommodation links through to the annexe on the ground floor providing versatility and allowing the house to run as one if desired. The master bedroom has steps down to its own en-suite bathroom in addition to the family bathroom.
The annexe is of similar construction to the house and has oil fired central heating.GROUNDS
The house and annexe are surrounded by their own gardens all encompassed by post and rail fencing. To the rear is an attractive rockery and shrub area with stone walling. To the front of the house are well stocked borders leading down to the front door with a raised paved patio area to allow views across the pond and the parkland adjoining.
The approach to the property is along a sweeping private drive attractively flanked by lawned areas with views across a large pond to the farmhouse. An array of mature trees including Apple, Beech, Copper Beech, Birch and Poplar provides an appealing approach to the farmstead.THE BUILDINGS
