West Lane is a quiet road serving a few properties to the South Western edge of the village. Holm Farm House is found approximately half way along this lane surrounded by its attractive grounds. It stands proudly with a southerly aspect overlooking its front garden and next to its Grade II listed barn. This barn is used by the current owners as not only garaging but with the useful addition of a conversion offering both a ground floor snug or hobby/games room and stairs to a first floor study. Subject to planning this area of the barn could be converted to a separate annexe without lessening the garaging capacity.

Standing at the front garden gate it would be difficult, when looking at the main house, not to think that it was anything but beautiful. The detached stone cottage under a pantile roof; with its colourful and well stocked beds, flowering clematis and manicured lawns is a sight to behold. Thought to date back to the 18th Century this former thatched, single story, farmhouse has been extended and modernised over more recent years to now offer spacious accommodation over two floors.

There is a welcoming reception hall to the centre of the property that branches left to a sitting room with a log burning stove and that further extends to a conservatory overlooking its splendid garden. To the right is a good sized kitchen with an Aga, linking breakfast area, porch/boot room and separate dining room. There is also the benefit of a ground floor cloakroom and separate shower room. To the first floor there are four bedrooms and a house bathroom.

The gardens to Holm Farm House are an absolute joy and loved by the current owners. Much of the area is down to lawn but with separate ‘beds’ of colour planting and shrubberies. The rear garden has the remains of what was a sizeable Victorian greenhouse and that might well be restored to its former glory for an all year round kitchen garden.
