A handsome late 18th Century house with beautifully balanced features including a central doorway with an open pediment, single sash windows, dentil eaves and a pantiled roof. This fine house is Grade II Listed and situated within the old part of Farndon village and the conservation area.

The house provides practical and well designed accommodation for a family. There is a long enchanting rear garden and a useful outbuilding, garage and office.

The Portico entrance leads to a reception hall with a fine Georgian dog-legged staircase which leads to a half landing at mezzanine level and steps up to the main landing and front rooms. The ground floor accommodation provides two nicely proportioned reception rooms with lofty ceilings and Georgian box sash windows. The kitchen and dining area is perhaps an older part of the house with a heavily beamed ceiling and French doors to the garden. Also on the ground floor is a useful utility room with shower cubicle and downstairs wc. The first floor provides two principal bedrooms in the front of the house which mirror the downstairs reception rooms. There is a rear landing with bedrooms three and four ideal for the family and the house bathroom. Central heating throughout the property is gas fired.

The garden is a particular feature of the property being quite long in character, enclosed and secluded. The property has a field gate entrance from Main Street and a vehicular driveway at the side of the house.
