A beautiful example of half-timbered design, Norton Green Farmhouse is arguably one of the most picturesque properties in Norton Green Lane – an idyllic spot midway between Knowle and Lapworth.
Dating from the 16th century, this Grade II listed period residence features framed leaded windows and exposed ceiling and wall beams.
The L-shaped entrance hallway has stone flooring and fitted cloakroom with contemporary white suite.
Leading off are two charming reception rooms. The first is a dining room with a brick chimney breast and open fire.
A connecting door opens into the original front entrance lobby and then the cosy living room with exposed brickwork and open fireplace with raised hearth.
A brick archway leads through to the superb orangery style kitchen. This has cream units, central island and polished granite worktops. French doors open to the gardens.
Off the main hallway there is a cosy snug and a spiral staircase up to bedroom four. This is served by a downstairs shower room.
The original stable buildings have been incorporated into the main house, creating an excellent suite of rooms with a utility, study with a brick chimney breast and cast iron wood burning stove, and a recreation room with mirror image chimney breast, another wood burning stove and patio doors.
Upstairs the master suite has exposed wall and ceiling beams.
The second bedroom has been turned into a fully fitted dressing room complete with en suite bathroom.
A family bathroom has a white suite and panelled spa bath.
On the second floor there are two further double bedrooms with storage and a shower room.
Norton Green Farmhouse is set in more than eight acres with landscaped gardens, orchard, pastureland, vegetable plot and herb garden.
The old dairy is now a store/large detached garage incorporating a wine store and workshop to the back.
Norton Green Lane is on the outskirts of Knowle village and close to open countryside.
It is for sale through John Shepherd on 01564 783866 for £1,295,000.
