A charming period farmhouse boasting a wealth of character features together with an annexe, outbuildings and 10.75 acres of pasture land enjoying complete privacy and seclusion.

For sale as a whole or in two lots.

This attractive farmhouse is believed to date back to the 1800's and is of stone elevations under a pitch tiled roof. The house provides spacious living accommodation briefly comprising an entrance hall, a generous 9m living room with open fireplaces at either end, dining room, rear hall, shower room and a well-equipped kitchen. Also on this floor is a garden room in need of completion which would convert to a superb kitchen/dining room and a stone barn that could be adapted to form an additional bedroom suite and link to the annex. On the first floor are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. In addition to the main house is a bungalow which is subject to an Agricultural Occupation Condition. There is a planning application pending to have the tie lifted and to incorporate this area into the main house. The annexe is of a good size and offers two bedrooms, family bathroom, kitchen, separate dining room and a living room.

Lot 1—Farmhouse, gardens and 8.87 acres. Guide Price £700,000.

The property is ring-fenced by its own land and is approached over a private driveway approximately 100m long. On the right of the driveway is a the site of a former pole barn which has now been removed but would be perfect for stabling or a storage shed.
