This is an appealing rural property, combining a four bedroom detached farmhouse for updating, together with two detached two-storey stone barns, immediate and larger gardens incorporating various outbuildings.

This charming stone built farmhouse incorporates considerable character and appeal, and is offered in need of some general modernisation/updating, allowing the purchasers to incorporate their own decorative and design ideas.

Accommodation provides entrance porch, sitting room, living room, kitchen/dining room and bathroom to ground floor. Four good sized bedrooms to first floor. There are delightful immediate walled gardens giving on to larger gardens and various outbuildings, including two detached two storey stone barns. A sweeping driveway approach provides parking hard standing for numerous vehicles.

Potential would appear to exist to convert the barns into some form of residential use, perhaps as holiday cottages, subject to obtaining any necessary planning consents.

Additionally, Imerys, the neighbouring and surrounding land owners, leased a large adjacent paddock to the former owners of this property, we understand that the paddock could be available for lease or purchase by the new owners, subject to separate additional negotiation.

Combining this property's character, setting and huge potential, it is anticipated to appeal to a good number of people and early enquiries are advised.
