Yew Tree Farmhouse stands opposite to the picturesque village green within the Collingham conservation area. The handsome double fronted Georgian facade with Victorian bay windows is South facing. The house is predominantly built with red brick elevations under a pantiled roof and a stone elevation to the rear part of the property dates back to the 17th Century. Indeed this is a house of immense charm and character with many original features, beamed ceilings, fireplaces, panelled doors and fine joinery.

The principal reception rooms are spacious and adaptable. There are front and back staircases to the first floor, winding staircase leading to a second floor bedroom. The house has gas fired central heating and most of the windows are double glazed.

The accommodation on the ground floor provides a reception hall with the front staircase, sitting room with bay window and built-in bookcase with fine Georgian fluted columns. Dining room has a heavily beamed ceiling, there is a rear lobby with access to the cellar accommodation, galley type kitchen and downstairs shower room. Forming part of the 17th Century part of the house is the sitting room with a wonderful oak framed inglenook and heavily beamed ceiling. This room has French windows to the garden. The accommodation extends to a studio or family room with a cathedral ceiling, Velux lights and rafters.

The first floor provides a mezzanine level, study or bedroom number 5, galleried landing and the principal bedrooms on first floor level together with an inner landing and the family bathroom. The winding staircase which rises from the sitting room continues to a second floor bedroom with gable window. Indeed the accommodation is quirky and very interesting whilst the rooms are of a practical size for contemporary modern living and family accommodation.
