The property benefits from two very well-established and beautifully presented driveways. The upper driveway is from Dean Road and this driveway gives access down to the property by automatically operated gates. The lower driveway leads from Greenfield Road through the Liphill Farm hamlet of four properties and an automatic gate gives access to a beautifully cobbled driveway which rises up to Hey Farm. These driveways both connect in front of Hey Farm and there is an access lane around the rear. Both driveways give easy access to the land. The land, as the attached plans demonstrate, surrounds the home and gives the property a huge degree of security and privacy.
WALKS AND FARMLAND
Enjoying the view and the land around it, Hey Farm has a sense of power, and the beautiful view gives it that ‘something very special’. With walks over the farmland, the vendor has, over the years, taken great pleasure and pride in planting trees, shrubbery and mixed hedgerows - maintaining walls and such like. It should be noted that the two of the fields to the north of the property have a footpath passing over them as does parts of lane. A footpath diversion 21 years ago ensures that the property is not, itself, disturbed by any passing footpath.
