Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
An attractive period farmhouse presented in excellent order throughout, suitable for multi generational living, set in large gardens and grounds and enjoying complete privacy and seclusion.

This attractive period farmhouse is of rendered stone elevations under a pitched slated roof and enjoys oil fired central heating and double glazing throughout. The accommodation in brief comprises an entrance porch/study which leads through to an inner hall where to the left are two double bedrooms and a newly fitted family bathroom. The living room enjoys an inglenook fireplace with log burning stove set in stone surround along with a bread oven and stairs rise to the first floor. The kitchen/dining room has a lovely open feel to it and enjoys a modern fitted farmhouse style kitchen with a number of integral appliances and island unit. From here views can be enjoyed of the gardens with doors leading out to both the garden and courtyard. Also on this floor is a shower room completing the downstairs accommodation. Upstairs are two double bedrooms, both enjoying views of the gardens.

The owner of the adjoining barns has tried to obtain planning permission for residential use but was unsuccessful. It is our understanding that they intend to re-submit/appeal this application. If successful they have indicated they will try for 'fall back' which will mean the current barns will be demolished and new builds put in their place. However, these will be further away from Higher Bickley.
