This fascinating period country house is Listed Grade II and retains immense character and charm throughout the highly flexible accommodation. The origins of Heale Wold, formerly known as Heale Farm, date back to the 15th Century and has been described as a cross passage hall house. Endless historical features confirming its age, includes a cross passage hall with flagstones and beams, two parlours, one used as a sitting room with exquisite plaster work, friezes, a hamstone fireplace and a beautifully preserved spice cupboard and two chamfered beams. There is a further sitting room in this part of the house also with inglenook fireplace with smoking chamber and bread oven, beams and leaded light windows.

The more symmetrical addition to the property, believed to date back to the early 18th Century has central front door with arched Strawberry Hill Gothic fanlight, which leads into a formal entrance hall with Georgian staircase and panelled doors lead into two similar size reception rooms. The drawing room has an unusual carved stone fireplace with jet master grate and two windows to either side. There is a plain ceiling cornice and a further window with shutters and a seat overlooking the front garden. The dining room has oval plasterwork with a thistle, a period fireplace, cupboards and a further window with shutters looking to the front of the house. There is a cloakroom and wc off the main hall and a doorway through to the breakfast room having exposed studwork panelling and evidence of cruck beam construction and a crockery pantry. The kitchen is well fitted with range of Shaker style cupboards and has sliding French doors out on to the rear garden. A beautifully built south facing garden room provides excellent reception space and has French doors out on to the gardens. As previously mentioned the rear of the house provides two reception rooms and together with a work room and store and two first floor bedrooms could provide a good size annex cottage, as has been before. The spacious first floor landing has further staircase to loft storage space and doors leading into the principal bedroom suite which is well proportioned, enjoys glorious views and has a door through to a dressing room with bespoke cupboards and recessed dressing table and a bathroom with bespoke handmade cupboards.
