Built in 1778, this rare example of a farm manager’s property, displays an evidence of gentility and wealth with its elegant front facade boasting beautiful sandstone lintels, wide architraves and impressive entrance. The neighbouring properties spaced out along the lane, all originally serviced The Wood Farm. The story goes that King Charles II gave the surrounding wood to a wood cutter who showed him the way when he was lost and looking for Boscobel House. This property has only had four owners in its entire existence and the historical links to the environs are sure to appeal to one’s imagination.

The regular symmetry of the front facade appearance, with its pretty cast iron railings and pedestrian gate, has a romantic simplicity and one is immediately taken by an appreciation of the substance of the property. This is not to say that its is particularly grand or imposing, and this is one of its advantages. It achieves an air of quality and importance, having very generous accommodation whilst remaining welcoming and indeed manageable. The three main reception rooms are all double aspect and generously proportioned. The size of the house is actually deceptive as the accommodation extends back a long way to incorporate a large parlour housing the old well which is hidden below the tiled floor, an old dairy and a more rustic and simple level of presentation. Historically the back of the house, where originally would have been sited the farm office, provided the entrance for the farm workers and now offers a very versatile space. Furthermore, the outbuilding which adjoins the main house could potentially be converted, subject to planning permission, to provide ancillary accommodation.
