Covid-19 restrictions

We are now able to arrange viewings and valuations. Due to the pandemic, sensible precautions and conditions are now in place, to protect all parties. Before a viewing is arranged we would ask for any potential buyer to have seen the property externally(if possible), be familiar with the area and to have undertaken as much research as possible. Phone us and ask anything. Let us know your likes and dislikes and we will do our best to guide you. We do not want to place at risk our vendors or ourselves, to any unnecessary contact. Ideally viewers should be in a position to proceed and for this property to be what they are looking for, not simply to get an idea with a future view of possibly moving. If any person is 'at risk', had recent contact with anyone showing cold like symptoms, or in any way feels unwell, please inform us so a decision can be made. All viewings will be accompanied. Please wait away from the front door for us to arrive. Please bring hand sanitiser, if possible disposable gloves and face masks. We will open up and when ready ask you to step inside. We will all keep a 2 meter distance. If you wish to see inside a cupboard etc, ask us to open it. Do not touch anything. If you accidently touch anything please inform us so we can disinfect. Once the viewing has taken place please exit the property immediately. We would ask you to then phone us with questions and feedback. We look forward to seeing you.

The property

Believed to have been built around the early 1600's, West Farm House was purchased by the current owner in 1983. They undertook substantial works to preserve the property and enjoyed it as a family house. In 1991 the decision was made to utilise the considerable accommodation as a care home. Successfully operated for many years the decision was made, last year, to close and allow the next custodian to decide on the best way forward, business or family home. Due to the extensive nature of the accommodation, I will aim to provide a brief walk through in my particulars, however a plan is attached to hopefully make clear the layout.

The accommodation

From West Farm Close side we walk into the entrance hall with cloakroom, Right a drawing room with inglenook fireplace. Left into a large commercial style kitchen breakfast room. From here into a large utility room with door into the gardens, left into an inner hall with office/bedroom and cloakroom. Next Into a good sized double bedroom with walk in wet room.
