Old Loves Farm is a fabulous Grade II Listed farm house believed to date from the early/mid 18th century and set in well maintained gardens. The property has a small paddock to the rear as well as featuring a large yard with a separate access and an array of quality barns and outbuildings. Internally, the spacious well laid out interior features a good sized modern kitchen/breakfast room with 'Neff' appliances and tiled flooring, a dual aspect family room with an Inglenook fireplace and exposed beams, a study, a sitting room with an inviting log burning stove for those cold evenings and a separate dual aspect dining room. There is also a utility and cloakroom. Two separate staircases ascend to the first floor where there are five bedrooms, an en suite shower room and family bathroom. There are generous private lawned gardens and an orchard.
The group of outbuildings offer a wide range of potential uses from possible conversion to ancillary dwellings or holiday accommodation (subject to planning), to storage facilities / commercial rental opportunities (6 units are currently let out bringing in an annual income). The outbuildings comprise a range of former farm buildings either side of a concrete yard together with an adjacent Dutch barn and an open-fronted implement store. The buildings are accessed via two separate gated entrances off Bowerhill Lane. The road side range is a mix of modern and traditional buildings comprising an open-fronted barn (13.8 x 5.7); an enclosed garage/workshop (5.7 x 4.4); a 2 bay storage barn (5.7 x 4.4 plus 5.7 x 4.6) and a range of three former stables (4.42 x 3.6; 4.42 x 3.8; 4.4 x 3.7). There is a steel framed garage/workshop (13.7 x 9.1) and 3 x block built stables. There is also a 2 bay steel framed, open-fronted implement store (9.0 x 6.2) and a 4 bay Dutch barn (18.0 x 7.3) with a concrete yard alongside.
