Introduction

Pervin forms part of the Caynham Estate, originally sold in 1541 by Henry V111 following the dissolution of the Abbey of Wigmore. Over the centuries the estate has gradually been subdivided, and in the 1920 s was sold to Frederick Robinson who up until its sale 10 years ago had been a tenant of the estate since 1909. The farmhouse is a magnificent half-timbered and local stone building and retains many original features. A particular feature of the farmhouse is the barns, stables and granary including a spectacular archway leading to the property which are arranged in a horseshoe. The plank clad barns which hold current planning permission retains the original stone floors and the original timbers bear the carpenters marks. The farmhouse has in excess of 4,000 sq feet,

Property description

Go under the archway and park in front of one of the garages, enter the farmhouse into a large beamed ceiling hallway with stairs rising to the first floor, heavily beamed ceiling and walls make a grand entrance, and are the beginning of this wonderful journey. The farmhouse kitchen was originally two rooms and has been opened up by the current owners to provide a large, warm and welcoming country farmhouse kitchen, with quarry tiled flooring, bespoke kitchen units with drawers beneath. The heart of the home is the beamed and tiled inglenook, which holds a three oven Aga together with its electric companion Aga stove to the left. The sink over-looks the front courtyard, and there is space for both a large fridge/freezer and dishwasher. The dining end has enough head height to take a large dresser as well as farmhouse kitchen table and chairs and sofa. You can imagine a cold night and just sitting with the heat from the Aga as you sip a cup of warming Cocoa. The Main drawing room has a large vaulted beamed ceiling and the flagstone flooring has been inset with granite upon which sits a lovely Clearview wood burning stove. The feature local stone wall has large picture windows over-looking the rear garden and open countryside beyond. A Christmas tree would sit beautifully in this elegant formal drawing room. From the hallway there are two further reception rooms, summer and winter, both having inglenook recesses and both housing wood-burning stoves, the wood being available from your own cider orchards. The winter reception has the original oak stripped flooring, whereas the summer one has herringbone parquet flooring. A Secret door from this room takes you into a large storage area, well hidden from view, and a terrific place for hide and seek, although if you didn t know the room existed you could be there a while!. A conservatory runs along the back of the farmhouse and offers splendid views a real quiet space, just to sit and read, whilst drinking in the view. There is also a shower room on the ground floor which doubles as a guest cloakroom. Stairs to a large cellar are accessed off the rear facing winter sitting room. Take the stairs to the first floor and here you will find four bedrooms with the Master bedroom having an en suite and a further family bathroom on this floor, All the bedrooms on the first floor are doubles and, in my opinion, the current Master would be turned into the guest suite. Take the stairs to the second floor and open your eyes and mind to what should become an exquisite Master suite or potential for two additional bedrooms. The stairs bring you up into a large reception room, which could be incorporated into the Master suite as an office/further bedroom with stripped wooden flooring and a heavily beamed vaulted ceiling, A Suffolk latch door from this room leads you into what could become a private sitting room with far reaching views to the front elevations. Open the door into a baronial size vaulted ceiling main bedroom double aspect with far reaching views to both front and rear elevations., There are walk ways through the beams themselves, this suite alone is well worth the visit to the farm, its space and grandeur need to be seen to be believed. Off this rooms is a vaulted ceiling bathroom, and further bedroom, which would convert into a luxurious dressing room. You could however begrudgingly give this over to a relative. This farmhouse is the property of ones dreams.

Outbuildings

Pervin is to be sold with the stables, granary and side barn. The large barn has current planning permission to change into three beautiful residential properties. These barns would be developed with 2 acres of land. The steel and corrugated barns would need to be removed to offer the development far reaching views. Pervin itself would then retain a 5 acre paddock and the garden immediately behind the farmhouse.

Gardens

The rear garden is laid to lawn with a patio area to house the table and chairs and offer an ideal place for a barbeque. Through the gate to a natural pond and surrounding garden, there is a further area gated that takes you to the front courtyard.

The cider orchard and paddock is located on the left as you go down the driveway.
