Owners Comments

“The village of Lockerley is a friendly and supportive community, which offers many and varied groups and activities for villagers of all ages and interests. We, and our now grown up children, have enjoyed taking part in many of these over the years we have lived at Street Farmhouse. We've particularly enjoyed exploring the network of off-road footpaths in and around Lockerley, for walking (with and without dogs) and jogging. In carrying out the changes we have made ie. moving the bathroom to allow an ensuite, and most recently refitting the kitchen, we have always borne in mind the original features of this period house and tried to change it as little as possible.”

Its stylish yet versatile accommodation includes an attractive fitted kitchen, spacious utility room and four reception rooms whilst on the first floor are four large bedrooms and an ensuite shower room in addition to the family bathroom.
