Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Sowerbys are pleased to offer this superb opportunity to acquire a truly unique property. Set in grounds of around 17.5 acres, Railway Farm is a secluded haven with delightful views and a true sense of the rural life. Any purchaser looking for a property to accommodate horses or other livestock is sure to be impressed by the land on offer. To the south-west of the bungalow, there are two fenced paddocks, with the majority of the land (around 13.5 acres) to the north of the site. At present, the land is being used as grazing and offers a completely blank canvas.

The property itself is a spacious three bedroom bungalow, offering around 1,785 square feet of floor space, with accommodation which comprises sitting room, dining room, garden room, study, kitchen/breakfast room, three bedrooms, family bathroom, a fully refurbished shower room, utility, boot room and a fantastic games room, which was converted out of the original double garage. To the rear of the bungalow there is a well maintained lawn area with a paved patio.

Immediately to the side of the bungalow, there is a covered parking area for at least two large vehicles which is adjoined at the other side to steel framed 100' x 60' barn. The barn is in good condition and could be adapted to become an indoor training arena or into American style stabling. To the north of the barn there is a large section of concrete which previously housed the owners pig buildings, but could now form a suitable base for either stables or additional barns. The duck farm which was historically part of Railway Farm lies to the west of the boundary and is now under private ownership.
