A Grade II listed 17th century five bedroom detached stone under thatch farmhouse with two bathrooms, and a double garage, set back from the High Street in Lavendon village.
Manor Farm was renovated in the mid 1990s including new windows, rewiring and plumbing, and a damp proof course. Within the last 10 years the main roof has been rethatched and two new gas fired combination boilers have been installed. The property has character features throughout such as exposed timber beams, an oak staircase, and exposed oak flooring. Planning permission and listed building consent was obtained to add a garden room to the rear of the sitting/dining room, but this has since lapsed. There is over 2,800 sq. ft. of accommodation including a sitting/dining room with a trap door to the cellar, a traditional farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room, and a Victorian tiled reception hall on the ground floor. The five double bedrooms are set over two floors with three bedrooms, an en suite bathroom, and a family bathroom on the first floor and two additional double bedrooms on the second floor.
The dual aspect open plan sitting/dining room has a large feature inglenook fireplace with an open fire set on a stone hearth with a wooden mantel over, exposed ceiling beams, and a central pillar. There is a second stone built fireplace in the dining area with built-in storage to the side. The room has exposed wood flooring, and double doors to the garden.
Bedrooms and Bathroom
The main bedroom on the first floor has an en suite Victorian style bathroom with a free standing roll top bath, a pedestal wash basin, and a low level WC. The main bathroom has a boiler cupboard housing the two Valliant Ecotec gas fired boilers, and fitted shelving. One of the second floor bedrooms measures 31ft. and has a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams, and dual aspect windows with views over the gardens.
The front garden is laid to lawn with established trees and shrubs. A double width driveway provides off street parking for four cars leading to the double garage which has a cloakroom. The southerly aspect rear garden has a paved and gravel seating area with a raised rockery with flower and shrubs. The rest of the garden is mainly lawned with a natural pond and water fall, and various tree and shrub borders.
Lavendon village has a primary school, pre school and nursery, a shop and Post Office, a village hall and the Green Man and The Horseshoe pubs. Further amenities and catchment schooling are available in Olney which is approximately 3 miles away.
