Bedrooms: 5

A beautifully restored, Grade II Listed, Georgian Farmhouse and outbuildings. Boasting wonderful views, all set in about 2.06 acres.

This property is believed to have been built in the mid 18th Century and exhibits many classical Georgian features typical of this period.

The main house at Ship Farm has recently benefited from a significant programme of restoration works that have reinstated the house's beautiful period character whilst sympathetically adding modern day comforts.

Add a set of traditional outbuildings, one of which has a planning permission for conversion, outstanding views over the National Trust's Golden Cap estate toward Golden Cap itself, a holding of land that extends to 2.06 acres, and you have something very special indeed.

The restorative works, which have been conducted with the oversight of the National Trust and Listed Building Office, have seen a wholesale renewal of the house including a new roof, heating systems (including underfloor heating on the lower ground floor) water treatment plant, new windows and natural sheep's wool insulation throughout.

The choices around the fittings in the kitchen and the en-suite bathroom have purposely been left for a new owner to choose.

The accommodation is arranged over four floors with, on the

ground floor, a sitting room and a drawing room on either side of a spacious hallway that has a picture window with wonderful views over the countryside leading to Golden Cap. Each of these rooms has a fireplace as its focal point. On the lower ground floor there is a spacious kitchen/dining room and a utility room, all laid with limestone floor with underfloor heating with two sets of double doors leading

out onto the garden taking in the views.

On the first floor, there is a principal bedroom suite with an ensuite bathroom, a second bedroom, and a family shower room. On the second floor, there are three additional bedrooms served by a family bathroom. The property is in outstanding decorative condition having many of the traditional features restored. Gas-fired central heating with new cast iron radiators throughout.

A brick and stone wall borders the front of the house with a

wrought iron gate to the centre that leads through to an

enclosed formal lawn, bisected by a flagstone path that leads up to the front door. To the right-hand side is a gated vehicular entrance leading through to a driveway and the outbuildings. There are three stone and brick buildings, the principal of which has planning permission for two holiday cottages (WD/D/19/002227).

To one side there are two Dutch Barns, one open and the other half enclosed with a further block and rendered single garage to one side. The grounds are for the most part a blank canvas, either laid to lawn near the house or beyond laid to pasture enclosed by mature hedging and post and wire fencing. On the north side of the garden, there is an orchard area with a large greenhouse. Immediately behind the house there is a magnificent mature Walnut tree which frames the

view over to Golden Cap itself.
