Thrubwell Farm is a truly exceptional property situated on the Thrubwell Plateau between Nempnett Thrubwell and Redhill. Historic records suggest it may have been the old Thrubwell Manor. The property comprises of an impressive stone farmhouse plus six traditional stone outbuildings, beautiful gardens and land of approximately 8.5 acres.
The Farmhouse itself is south facing and boasts lovely traditional features throughout including original well-polished flagstones on the ground floor, original beams, wide farmhouse doors and sash windows. The kitchen is fully fitted with an electric AGA and a dedicated pizza oven. The current owners have also obtained planning permission for an extension to the kitchen and scullery.
The reception rooms are full of natural light with the main rooms enjoying fireplaces and uninterrupted views from every window.
The charm continues to the first floor where there are four double bedrooms, two of which have en-suites. The family bathroom has a lovely roll top bath and separate shower. Two further double rooms can be found on the second floor, one of which has an en-suite shower room.
The stone built farm buildings are impressive and are formed around a courtyard overlooking the extensive wildlife pond. They are separated from the farmhouse by the driveway and grassed areas. Planning permission (ref 18/05152/FUL) was granted on 20th June 2019 for the conversion of the buildings to create 5 dwellings. The buildings have potential for a range of commercial uses as well as residential uses.

The impressive grounds surrounding the Farmhouse and Farm Buildings have been lovingly brought to life with immaculate lawned areas, borders and shrubs and a wildlife pond. A driveway leads to the house and buildings which is set in the centre of its plot. The orchard has been restored with 100 new apple trees which are suitable for juicing and cider. The rest of the land is divided into paddocks which are grazed by horses, sheep and cattle.
