Mayfield Farmhouse is a handsome detached family home of timber and red brick construction under a black glazed pantile roof. The property principally dates from the Elizabethan period with a Georgian façade and Victorian wings. The house is Grade II Listed as being of architectural and historical importance and is also mentioned in Sir Nikolaus Pevsner’s authoritative guide to The Buildings of England.

The house enjoys well-proportioned family sized
accommodation throughout with a particularly
spacious living room, an elegant dining room
and a large open plan kitchen/breakfast/family
room with views over the front garden and
countryside and access to the rear private patio

The current owners have maintained the
property well and have created a wonderful
family home whilst also maintaining many of its
original period features including sash windows
and shutters, ceiling cornicing, inglenook fireplaces, pamment flooring, and exposed
internal beams and brickwork. The eastern wing
of the house which is currently used as a games
room, library and sun room has potential for an
annexe subject to the necessary consents.
