Plumford Farmhouse is a substantial period house with origins as early as the 13th century and its history documented from 1547. The house has been extended and improved over generations and has an elegant mostly symmetrical appearance, probably as a result of alterations in the 18th century and later in the mid-20th century. The result is a fine family home which has, more recently, been the subject of comprehensive updating.
The very light and bright accommodation is centred on a generous staircase hall with galleried landing above. The reception rooms radiate off the hall and are of considerable proportions, with the drawing room enjoying a triple aspect and having three pairs of French doors opening to the garden. The dining room is a very elegant room with a semi-circular window to one end. The kitchen/family room is at the heart of the house and is of substantial proportions, lending itself to easy family living. A large decked area is found outside for outdoor entertaining. The cellars below, a utility room, cloak room and butler’s pantry complete the ground floor. The first floor benefits from two large bedroom suites, each with a sizeable bathroom. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom approached from the galleried landing.
Plumford Farmhouse is approached from a quiet country lane over a gravelled driveway terminating in a parking and turning area with central flower bed. Adjacent to the house is the double garage with studio/office over. The gardens sweep away from the house and are principally laid to lawn with a selection of herbaceous and shrub beds, beech hedges, rose beds and specimen trees including birch, cherry and beech. The garden has brick and flint walls to two sides. The front lawns drop away from the house to an ornamental pond. To the east of the house is an enclosed garden with a swimming pool and adjacent pool building. There are generous terraces and decks adjacent to the house and the pool, and there are some long distant views across the orchards towards the sea.
