Woodgate Farmhouse comprises a Grade II Listed farmhouse offering well proportioned family accommodation. Although in need of some updating, it offers a wealth of character features associated with a property of its age including inglenook fireplace, flagstone flooring and small paned sash windows with shutters.


Pillared entrance porch with doorway leading directly into the entrance hallway with elegant staircase to first floor. The drawing room has an attractive fireplace with small pane sash windows to front with shutters and on the opposite side of the hallway can be found the sitting room again with an open fireplace with inset woodburner and sash windows to front. Beyond is a useful study with views from two aspects and access to the older part of the house where the dining room can be found with flagstone flooring and large inglenook fireplace (currently sealed). The kitchen, cloakroom and utility room stretch along the rear of the house and provides scope to create larger living/kitchen space subject to the necessary planning consents. From here there is a link to a rear hallway and access to a barn/studio offering enormous potential with windows to rear and door to front together with adjoining store room.

On the first floor can be found five bedrooms, four of which enjoy fine southerly views to front together with a large rear bedroom all serviced by two bathrooms.


The gardens at Woodgate Farmhouse are delightful. The front of the house is entered through a wrought iron garden gate set within original stone wall and lead up to the front door. The front garden is lawned with deep borders stocked with a variety of traditional shrubs and plants including hydrangea, daphne, ferns, tree peonies, azaleas and flowering cherry. There are two magnolia grandiflora to the front of the house. A secret garden probably created from a former farm barn provides a lovely entertaining area with ornamental pond and door to garden store. A further lawned garden surrounded by a stone wall with wrought iron gates lies to the south west and a trellice and archway lead into an enclosed courtyard terrace at the rear of the house. The kitchen garden is found to the north side of the house. A further area of garden lies on the other side of the adjoining lane which leads to an adjoining property also providing parking space for several cars.
