A central staircase leads to a first floor landing with wooden panelling and flooring, four double bedrooms, three with ensuites.

The Adjoining Barns

Attached to the main house via the games room, an inner doorway leads into the substantial, partially renovated sandstone barns attached to the main house, in excess of 3000 sq ft. Planning permission has been granted to extend into the main house creating large family accommodation, ancillary accommodation, studio, workshop, live/work or simply used for storage.

Wild Boar Barn

This is a stylish one bedroom detached barn conversion which has been lovingly renovated to create a contemporary home. Internally it has been completed to an extremely high standard and has a fabulous mix of modern and contemporary styling mixed with some traditional features, with a large kitchen/living room with central island unit and bespoke fitted cabinetry, snug with full length doors enjoying the views out to the mountains, utility room, WC and an impressive master bedroom suite with oak staircase, glazed gallery balustrade, luxurious bathroom suite and fitted wardrobes.


Approached by a gated private road, the elevated position of this property and its grounds are stunning! The plot extends to around 2.5 acres and includes ample gravel parking for a large number of vehicles and an array of terraces and seating areas, perfect to enjoy the everchanging views across the landscape. To the front of Carhullan, there is a pretty and well stocked cottage garden, with lovely lawn, flower beds and a superb raised terrace area, the perfect place to enjoy the evening sunsets. To the side there is a further lawned garden, bordered by trees and shrubs. To the rear of Carhullan, there is a lovely courtyard with large L-shaped barns which adjoin the main house offering further scope for development with granted planning permission or as currently used for storage.
