Description This is a lovely rural property with no near neighbours with delightful far reaching views and various outbuildings. In total the property consists of the main house and two further detached two storey stone barns sitting in a plot of approximately 1.3 acres. The main house is a handsome stone built farmhouse where the entrance porch shortly leads through to the bright dual aspect kitchen which has a range of wall and floor mounted units and multi paned double glazed windows. Adjacent to the kitchen is a formal dining room large enough for an 8-10 seat dining table and perfect for family dinners and special occasions. The character from this room is not only the high beams but the stone fireplace with huge granite lintel and wood burning stove. Flowing through from here are two reception rooms, the formal sitting room and a further room currently used as an office but equally as useful as a snug or reading room.

. 1 The formal sitting room is awash with light and has a focal point of the wood burning stove inset into again a large stone fireplace. Completing the ground floor is an above average size utility room which has not only space for the necessary appliances but is large enough to be used for the drying of clothes and further storage of household items. Off the utility is a downstairs shower room.

. 2 Rising to the first floor are four bedrooms and the family bathroom. The master bedroom is of particular note as it is a desirable double bedroom with high ceilings, original A-frame part exposed beams and built in wardrobes. There are two further double bedrooms, one with stunning far reaching rural views and a fourth single bedroom. This room does link with the second bedroom which could easily make a lovely dressing room or converted to an en-suite. The driveway comes off the lane and sweeps around past the first barn prior to getting to the main house. This first barn has been converted to make a sizable double garage which is perfect for normal uses or workshop and the first floor is a delightful one bedroom annexe with elevated rural views from the principal rooms.

. 3 The annexe could be let out for holiday usage or for long term lets and has been used most commonly as overflow accommodation for guests. The second detached barn is an unconverted barn with the current owners using the ground floor as a workshop and storage and the first floor is an open plan room with vaulted ceilings. We have been informed that the previous owners to the current had planning granted to convert this barn to a dwelling. If the required permissions were indeed granted this would make a perfect holiday let annexe for relatives or guests. There is copious parking for many vehicles on the drive and adjacent to the house and barns as well as the garage.

. 4 The total land is approximately 1.3 acres and is made up of formal gardens wrapping around the main house and a fenced paddock which would suit a pony or donkey. There are two vantage points in the higher part of the grounds which take in the charming views with a paved patio area with summer house in one area which has been the site for many a BBQ with family and friends over the years.
