Details

DESCRIPTION
Oak Lawn Farm has been in the sellers family for 68 years and comprises a detached period house, gig house and about 27.90ac (11.29 ha) of grassland, fenced for grazing sheep. There is a long driveway (about 150m) leading to the house as shown on the site plan. The house originates we believe from the 17th Century with timber frame, later encased with red brick all under a pantiled roof. Internally many of the rooms have the timber frame exposed, there are a number of fireplaces and original architectural features. The whole requires some modernisation and upgrading of fittings with the accommodation overlooking the formal gardens to the east and south and the court yard parking area to the west.
