Tenure: Freehold

Although in need of extensive modification, Billholm House is a fantastic period farmhouse with huge potential. 4 reception rooms, 7 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, boot room and 3 attic rooms. Outbuildings. Woodland and paddocks. In all about 7.89 acres. EPC rating G

Thought to date from the early 19th century, Billholm House has a part rendered finish under a slate roof. It occupies a lovely, sheltered position with the river flowing along its southern boundary. Although requiring extensive modification, Billholm House benefits from a wonderfully light and bright atmosphere not least because of its aspect. It has the potential to provide flexible family accommodation together will well-proportioned formal reception rooms. Cutting back much of the vegetation along the river bank in front of the house would open up the marvellous views across the river.

Set apart from the main house are the semi-derelict old laundry and coach house (with loft above). These are in need of significant modification but, subject to obtaining the necessary consents, could be converted to a number of alternative uses.

Billholm House is set in approximately 7.89 acres of wooded gardens and paddocks; the garden is well known for the sea of daffodils that the current owners have planted. The back drive is shared with the neighbouring farm but there is scope to reopen the drive that leads around to the front of the house and which is completely private. Heading downstream, the woodland, which is a carpet of snowdrops in early Spring, bends around the river joining a paddock at the southern end which extends to approximately 3.36 acres.
