Farthing Corner is a beautiful thatched house dating from the early 15th century, set in private gardens and woodland, in the small village of West Tytherley in Hampshire’s Test Valley.
The house is attractively decorated with the warmth and comfort of a true home. Cross the threshold under a metre-thick thatch into the beamed entrance hall, with large brick inglenook fireplace, and an antique table adorned with fresh flowers.
The relaxing sitting room has two generous and comfortable sofas set around a large fireplace with wood-burning stove. There are plenty of books and magazines to read whilst curled up by the fire.
The large kitchen has an Aga and from the large refectory table there are views onto both the gardens at the front and the woodland garden at the rear where you will often see deer and other wildlife, or wild ducks on the pond.
The house has a few acres of woodland, dotted with lovely flowering cherry trees, carpets of snowdrops, spring flowers and a bluebell wood. To the front and side of the house are a lawn and gardens, a vegetable plot (many of which are served for the delicious, home-cooked meals), and a fruit orchard.
The gravel driveway and secluded parking are particularly ideal if you have a classic car. For those of you who can’t leave the office behind there is wireless internet in the house.
Liz has lived at Farthing Corner since 1985 and has lovingly tended and improved the house and gardens over that time. The woodland is enchanting during an afternoon stroll or to enjoy the birdsong in the morning.
