Langford Farm is a spectacular rural property and has been in the same family ownership for over 44 years. Set in 4 acres, the property comprises a Grade II Listed farmhouse and a generous selection of outbuildings with beautiful gardens, paddock, woodland and pond, whilst enjoying privacy and unspoilt rural views.
The thatched farmhouse and adjoining barn, dating from the 16th Century, offers adaptable accommodation with two reception rooms, kitchen, study, three bedrooms and a bathroom, along with the adjoining barn providing a fantastic open living space with mezzanine, whilst beyond here is the utility and shower room. Many of the character features are still in place, including a round headed oak door frame, exposed beams, stone fireplace in the dining room and a large fireplace in the sitting room with bread oven to one side and the remains of the walk-in smoking chamber to the other with book shelves.
In addition to the house and adjoining barn is a significant range of outbuildings providing further development potential, subject to the necessary planning consent. Adjoining the house and barn is a covered archway and adjoining double carport leading to a range of timber stabling and sheds with brick store. Accessed by a separate drive, to the north, is a further range of stables, indoor riding school (108 ft x 57 ft) and separate barn (22 ft x 22 ft).
The grounds are a particular feature of the property; accessed along the lane, a gravel drive provides ample off-road parking and a turning area. Adjacent to the road is a mature hedge providing privacy and screening for the westerly facing garden, predominantly laid to lawn with planted borders. The rear garden is laid to lawn and enclosed by hedge boundaries and a superb terrace. The grounds run to the east with a pond, stream, interesting former Marl pit woodland and paddock. There is a superb circular walk running along the boundaries with plenty of beautiful seating areas and from the far end fantastic views across the surrounding countryside towards Raddon. With its excellent indoor school and stables it will certainly appeal to the equine buyer.SERVICES
