Hallwood Farmhouse is a traditional Grade II listed detached farmhouse understood to have formerly been two hall houses with origins dating back to the 15th Century with 17th and 19th Century additions. The property presents mixed elevations of white weatherboarding and tile hanging on a brick plinth set with predominantly metal framed leaded light windows beneath a pitched and hipped tiled roof. In historic England the property is described as having substantial timber framing with heavily jowled posts with hall trusses and queen trusses in the attic.
The period accommodation is arranged over two floors with many features indicative of the period. The three reception rooms include a sitting room with briquette open fireplace with double aspect to rear and side overlooking the garden.
The dining room includes an impressive inglenook fireplace housing woodburning stove incorporating two seats, inset display niches and bressumer beam enjoying aspect over the front garden. The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with base and eye level cupboards and drawers, work surfaces, fireplace housing oil fired twin oven Aga, space and electric point for cooker, quarry tiled floor, traditional walk in larder/utility with fitted shelving, cupboards, tiled work surfaces, cheese cage and overhead storage cupboards. A play room is fitted with book shelving and has a half glazed door to garden.
