The Farmhouse
Dating back to around 1860 and sitting at the head of the courtyard, this wonderful 5 bedroom home has been recently renovated by the current owner into a beautiful family home with the option of a 1 bedroom cottage to the side. Externally the farmhouse is a wonderful traditional building but internally it is a modern and stylish home with around 2150sq.ft of living accommodation. On the ground floor there is a lovely dining kitchen with views over the south facing garden, two lounges, conservatory, pantry and an impressive staircase leading to the first floor where there are 4 double bedrooms and a contemporary family bathroom. Sitting to the side of the main home and accessed both independently and internally, there is an additional kitchen, lounge, shower room and a large bedroom, ideal for those looking for an annexe for multi-generational families, income potential or simply as an extension to the main home.

The Barns
There is an extensive range of traditional farm buildings and stables totalling over 6,500 sq. ft and arranged around a delightful, cobbled courtyard. The farm buildings are predominately of sandstone construction with slate roof coverings and a mix of double height and single storey. These consist of former stables, livestock and general purpose storage buildings. Complete with a number of original features, these offer further development potential, subject to the relevant planning consents, and could be used for a range of flexible options i.e. additional residential property, holiday cottages, office space, storage, equestrian facilities or other amenity use, subject to the necessary consents.

The property is accessed via a short drive leading through the courtyard of farm buildings to the north of the farmhouse. To the west of the buildings lie two paddocks with field shelter. Mature trees extend along the southern perimeter of the property bordered by a small watercourse.
