With a four bedroom farmhouse with two adjoining cottages and a three bedroom detached bungalow, this is a dream prospect for those seeking simply a large family home in a beautiful rural location or those looking for superb combination of commercial/residential accommodation for an ultimate live/work arrangement or even for those with bigger plans to develop the site even further, maybe for a leisure/hospitality opportunity (subject to planning). At Sowerby Lodge the opportunities are endless!
The main house is a beautiful 4 bedroom farmhouse with stunning original features, exposed beams and stonework and even an original barrel vault with feature arched stone ceiling. Internally it is immaculate order and has been completed to an exacting standard with high quality finishes and stylish decor. Each window is blessed with spectacular open countryside views!

The bungalow has its own driveway which leads around to a private parking area, carport and outbuilding.
Adjoining the main house, as either an extension to the main home or for further development, there are 2 two storey cottages which have been previously used as office space but with minor reconfiguration would make 2 superb holiday cottages, both with 2/3 bedrooms and their own garden spaces to the rear. These would be perfect for those looking to generate an income as a holiday let/AirbNb or separate work from home and use as office space.
