A Grade II listed farmhouse set in seven acres and with its own private moat has come up for sale at a guide price of £1,500,000, amid reports that 'top-end' houses over £1m are in high demand.
"I was hugely impressed by the scale of the farmhouse's rooms," says Savills' property agent Ben Rivett, "with grandeur alongside more cosy rooms, and all set on the edge of a moat with complete privacy."
Even from the outside it's clear that Tibenham Farm offers fine period details, from its ornate octagonal chimneys and leaded windows, which can be spotted from the drive, to the exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces found inside.
Other highlights include the exceptional main hall, which measures 29x19ft and includes a woodburner, as well as the charming drawing room and the contemporary kitchen which includes a breakfast room and has a huge vaulted ceiling.
The farmhouse has five bedrooms in total, including a master with en suite bath/shower room and stairs from the bedroom to a private dressing room.

The main guest bedroom also has the novelty of a staircase up to the second floor, where there is an en suite shower room, and there are a further two bedrooms and a bathroom in the main section of the house.
Above the kitchen there is a mezzanine floor which has a staircase up to the second floor, which leads into a self-contained flat. This is currently used as a study but offers real flexibility as it includes a kitchenette and a bed or sitting room.

Adjoining the house is a large walled garden with a generous area of lawn and a number of raised decking areas, which follow the path of the sun from the south to west and offer some wonderful opportunities to enjoy outdoor dining.
To the south is a paved terrace and more gardens, which are mainly laid to lawn and sweep down towards the moat, featuring specimen trees including willow, oak and beech.
The remaining land comprises woodland with walkways through, as well as further lawns and a large field, much of which has been left untouched to attract wildlife.
The property offers ample off-road parking space and the driveway, which approaches from the south leads to the property's good range of outbuildings. These include a general purpose barn, which provides excellent storage, a workshop and stabling if required, as well as a separate and substantial timber-frame barn. Subject to appropriate planning permissions, this could be converted.
