The Old Farmhouse in the village of Great Horwood, Buckinghamshire, is a comfortable family home that effortlessly blends iconic period features with a timeless take on modern interiors.
New to the market last week, this pretty cottage under a very neat thatch with an open porch has four bedrooms, with one in the roof space, and four reception rooms, including a large conservatory with French doors to the garden.
Currently on the market via Michael Graham for £900,000, the delightful detached cottage is presented to an immaculate standard with just under 3,000sq ft of accommodation and a south-facing garden in village setting.
The Old Farmhouse dates to the 16th-century and is listed Grade II, but has been refurbished well, with exposed beams, latch-and-brace timber doors, woodturners and fireplaces contrasting nicely with clean, white walls and a shaker-style kitchen with granite surfaces and a breakfast bar.
The village of Great Horwood is located between Aylesbury, Buckingham and Milton Keynes.
