Exquisite farm at St Mary Bourne

Lying on a quiet country lane, this 17th century Grade II listed farmhouse is beautifully maintained and has a magnificent tithe barn and outbuildings, paddocks, gardens and grounds extending to almost fifteen acres.

The interior is rich in character with exposed timbers, old oak doors, floors and staircase and inglenook fireplaces with one featuring a chimney brick dated 1676.
