Originally the dairy farm to the Peper Harow Estate, and owned by The Earl of Middleton, this historic house is Grade II listed and dates back to the late 16th century. Much of its superb architectural heritage has been preserved, and it is understood to have been extensively renovated and extended in the early 1900's, when it was owned by Julia Cairns, a famous journalist and Editor of Vogue magazine. It is featured in her book Home Maker.
The older parts of the house have very good ceiling heights for a property of this age. There are three notable arched brick fireplaces, attractive oak mullioned windows, and some beautiful oak board flooring. A substantial extension in 2016 has added an outstanding and bright, contemporary, open-plan living space leading from the kitchen. This is perfect family living space featuring underfloor heating and an impressive two-storey overhang window with hand-forged pewter door and window furniture. Two sets of glazed bi-fold doors lead out to the paved sun terrace and the garden beyond which surrounds the house, and there is a lovely outlook from all the rooms.
