Situation: Great Fernhill Farmhouse is a part of the Fernhill Estate just on the outskirts of Whittington. The property is placed to the end of its own extensive driveway off the B5009. The driveway splits and provides a right of way to the newly converted Chartland development of barn conversions to the north. Whilst the property is in reasonable condition, a prospective purchaser may wish to invest in a programme of remodeling areas such as the kitchen and bathrooms. Renovation could also be possible to incorporate the four additional attic rooms to the 2nd floor to return the property to its original splendor.

Great Fernhill Farmhouse was built in circa.1595 and boasts many original features such as chamfered ceiling beams, ledged and braced doors and original flooring. Particular features to this 17th Century building are the two imposing chimney breasts to its eastern elevation and the carved joists which wrap around the whole building and appear on all elevations. This type of detail exaggerated wealth and status of the English gentleman that it was originally built for, William Albany, who was thought to be a London Merchant Taylor.

The property comprises of; entrance hall, spacious kitchen and separate utility area featuring original quarry tiles and an oil Nobel cooker, large lounge with views out on to the garden, dining room / study, further sitting room, downstairs family bathroom, boiler room, conservatory, barrel-vaulted brick cellar, stunning Jacobean open-well staircase rising from ground floor to attic with molded handrail, carved newel-posts and barleysugar balusters, five bedrooms and a further family bathroom with electric underfloor heating upstairs. The attic / second floor, has an open stair case leading up and comprises of four large rooms with Velux windows that have the potential to convert this house in to a 8-9 bedroom property.
