New Delight Road, Rickinghall Guide Price £480,000


A registered smallholding offering just under six acres (stms) of gardens and paddocks, together with a detached family house with outbuildings.

Occupying a rural setting within the parish of Rickinghall, Osier Farm comprises a four / five bedroom detached house with extensive grounds and gardens of about 5.703 acres (2.308ha) stms. The original part of the house is probably Victorian which has been extended and modified in recent years, providing an individual family house. The accommodation covers in excess of 2,000sq.ft and although presentable, the living area would benefit from some cosmetic updating. Formally a pig farm which ceased operating in 2003, the current owners have been in residence for about 45 years.

The house is set to the north of its principal grounds of about 3.293 acres (1.333ha) which are an asset to the property consisting of more formal areas immediately to the rear of the house with an area of planted trees to the southern half of the main grounds. A driveway with two large outbuildings are located to the western side of the property. The remaining 2.41 acres (0.975ha) is 'divorced' from the principal property and is located about 50 yards to the north-west of the house, on the opposite side of New Delight Road.

A driveway to the front of the house provides off road parking for about three vehicles, however the main driveway to the west gives access to a detached blockwork tractor shed / garage which offers ample storage, power is connected. The principal driveway continues to a substantial open sided barn of the same construction which again offers extensive storage space. Set on an area of hard standing close to the house are two timber sheds and a greenhouse as well as a tool shed attached to the single storey extension.

The more formal areas of gardens consist of shrubberies, a rose garden and small orchard which leads onto a large expanse of lawn with ornamental pond. Of particular note is the southern half of the site which is extensively planted with many ornamental and native trees with a further natural pond. The boundaries to all sides are defined by established field hedges.
