Cann Lane Farm was once a small farmhouse in need of complete restoration. Consequently in 2006 the house was rebuilt and remodelled by Watts Developments, yet still retains a flavour of its origins and continues to stand in lovely landscaped formal private gardens and paddock land of approximately 3.5 acres on the Arley Estate.
Approached through an electrically operated gated driveway there is large courtyard that provides parking for several vehicles and access to a substantial L-shaped range of outbuildings presently used as a home office or could be further developed quite easily to extensive self-contained accommodation. Through the courtyard there is further hard standing ideal for those wishing to keep horses or other livestock. The farmhouse itself is of a generous size and extends to approximately 3200sq ft and has been imaginatively and creatively arranged over three floors including interesting features such as galleried landings and vaulted reception rooms. With great attention to detail the house has been sumptuously appointed to the highest of standards with a superb range of hand crafted kitchen cabinets around a full size Aga and luxuriously appointed bathrooms with limestone floors and walls.
Overall the property's situation and accommodation is ideally suited towards a family or extended family and indeed those wishing to work from home and if there is an equine interest then Cann Lane Farm is just ideal.

village was once part.
