Whitelee Cottage 
The Cottage lies opposite the farmhouse, and was converted in around 1994 by the Vendor under planning consent NP/HPK/0993/118. The cottage has good sized flexible accommodation with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The property is currently occupied by the vendor's daughter and was previously let as a self-catering holiday accommodation. The planning approval for the conversion contained the planning condition that the accommodation shall be ?ancillary to White Lee Farm and shall not be occupied, sold or let separately as an independent dwelling?.

Adjoining Barn 
Adjoining the farmhouse is a substantial stone barn currently used for storage and stabling, but offering the possibility of alternative uses (subject to planning). Indeed the Vendor obtained planning approval in 2005 (now lapsed) for converting the barn to extend the dwelling (NP/HPK/0505/0550) serving to illustrate the potential of this range of buildings.

The Land  
The land surrounds the property, as shown edged RED on the plan within these particulars. The land to the rear of the property is good flat grazing and mowing pasture and includes a stone field shelter. To the front of the property is amenity land through which runs a brook.
