The property enjoys access via a shared Right of Way passing a neighbouring dwelling to the entrance and boundary of Mount Flirt where the lane continues up the hill to the homestead. (In total approximately half a mile in length). We are informed by the vendor that the property connects to private septic tank drainage and soakaway which requires alteration and improvement.

We are informed that a public footpath passes through the field to the rear and away from the house (OS Ref 3962.) We are further informed that the outbuildings are in a poor state of repair and inspection is limited.
