Old Acres near Stour Provost is found at the end of a long drive lined with lime trees with its own land to the side and the main south facing garden to the front of the house with the drive sweeping round to the back. The house itself is believed to date from the mid 18th century and is constructed of stone elevations under a pitched tiled roof. The main house has an entrance hall, sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, family room, conservatory, utility room, boot room and cloak room on the ground floor along with four bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor.

Outside there is a separate building with kitchen, sitting room, bathroom and conservatory on the ground floor and 42' room above. The building has been used as an office, workshop and garage but has potential for living accommodation, subject to the necessary consents. Planning permission was granted several years ago for holiday let use but has now lapsed. There is also a three car garage, a large workshop and parking for a number of cars.

The gardens are mainly to the front (south) and west of the house with many mature trees, plants and shrubs along with a productive vegetable garden. The gardens and fields create an idyllic location with an abundance of wildlife. The house adjoins open farmland to the rear and side with views out to Duncliffe Wood. The land lies predominantly to the south and is currently split in to two paddocks.In all about 9 acres.

Old Acres Farm is on the market at a guide price of £950,000. For more information contact Giles Wreford-Brown at Symonds & Sampson LLP on 01258 473766.
