Greens Norton Park
The principal house is approached through a stone pillared entrance onto a gravel drive. The property is believed to date back to the 1600s
with later additions in the 1800s and 1900s but is not Listed. There are however many original period features, including feature fireplaces, original flooring and exposed beams throughout.
The property offers well proportioned and spacious living accommodation throughout. On the ground floor there are a range of flexible reception rooms, including a fabulous garden room, with feature fireplace, offering access and views across the gardens and surrounding countryside. There is also a delightful dual aspect drawing room, original entrance hallway and good sized kitchen breakfast room.
On the first floor the generous landing gives access to the dual aspect master bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. There are three further
double bedrooms and a family bathroom. A door links to one of the self-contained first floor flats (2/3 bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen, bathroom), which could easily be incorporated back into the main house to provide seven bedrooms in total.
Accessed via their own separate entrances and attached to the main house are two self contained flats, however one or indeed both could be easily incorporated within the main house. Both flats are well presented and each has two double bedrooms, with a sitting room, kitchen and bathroom. The flats are currently let on Assured Shorthold Tenancies but notice has been served.
1 & 2 Park Farm Cottages
Located on the edge of the farmyard and separately accessed is a pair of attractive stone built semi-detached cottages. Cottage 1 has 2 bedrooms, a sitting room, kitchen and bathroom, and is now in need of some sympathetic modernisation. The property is subject to an Assured Agricultural Occupancy Agreement. Cottage 2 has 3 bedrooms, 2 reception rooms, kitchen and first floor bathroom and is let on an Assured Shorthold Tenancy.
Located between the farmhouse and the cottage is an extremely impressive range of traditional and modern farm buildings extending to over 55,000 sqft. Located close to the house is a range of useful traditional stores, outbuildings and stabling together with a secure workshop. The main concrete yard benefits from a secure access
directly onto the highway and includes a superb full height traditional barn which is currently used for storage but has potential for alternative
uses. There is a comprehensive range of modern buildings which were previously utilised for the original dairy enterprise but have now been expanded to cater for modern livestock and grain storage together with useful covered machinery buildings. The cattle buildings have been used for a 450 head heifer rearing unit for the last 15 years. The range of buildings more than adequately supports the size of the full holding and have all been maintained in superb order. The buildings have been fully utilised in connection with the farming enterprises but have the potential for alternative commercial or residential uses subject to obtaining the necessary planning consents.

The land gently undulates in places and is well served by internal tracks although also benefits from good road frontage on the northern and southern boundaries.
