Bolingbroke Farmhouse is an elegant red brick Grade II Listed Farmhouse which, according to the local authority listing, dates from the mid-17th Century. Later extensions from the 18th Century to the later Arts and Crafts style of the 20th Century make the property an adaptable family home with excellent reception rooms with good ceiling heights and spacious bedrooms. The house has a wide range of period features including exposed timber framing, stripped wood and parquet floors and stylish Art Deco influenced wetroom en-suite to the master bedroom. Most unusually, to one end of the house, is a Pill Box dating from the Second World War which could now be put to much more peaceful use as a well insulated wine cellar. In all the house extends to about 5342ft2 (497m2)
Including within the sale is a beautiful thatched barn, also Listed Grade II with a 20th Century extension used as a billiard room. This building, subject to any necessary consents, could make an excellent home office/annex or ideal space for entertaining.
