DESCRIPTION
Being sold due to the retirement of the present owners after many years, the property could be purchased either as a going concern or it could be used for many uses subject to the necessary planning consents being obtained. The property might also be of interest to buyers with an equestrian interest as the farmhouse comes with a 4.5 acre (approx.) field and outbuildings that could easily be converted to stables.
The property is approached from the road via a long driveway running alongside the field, and enjoys outstanding and far reaching views across fields and open countryside. The farmhouse, which dates back to the 19th century, offers a modern and comfortable living standard, having been extensively updated over the years. The accommodation briefly comprises an entrance porch and hallway, a dual aspect lounge with a log burner, an open plan kitchen/diner with log burner, a ground floor shower room/wc, utility room, a basement room, 4 bedrooms and family bathroom.
The property has purpose built outbuildings which include the main kennel block next to the field, another 'L' shaped stone barn which has been converted to kennels and food preparation (this barn also has a very large walk-in storage loft), a third kennel block, a large storage shed, and a comfortable purpose built office. As well as fields there are formal gardens to both the front and the rear of the farmhouse, both with exceptional countryside views.
