Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This stunning four/five bedroomed detached sandstone house with superb views and paddock (the garden and paddock equate to just over approx. 2 acres) was formerly two cottages which have now been renovated to the highest specification. The home has been cleverly designed to enable flexible living accommodation and an internal door separates the main house into a fully self contained living area previously occupied by parents as an annexe, but has huge potential to be a holiday let. This rural location enjoys fabulous views and tranquillity.

The accommodation briefly comprises porch, stunning double height open plan kitchen, dining area, sitting room, snug, galleried landing, four bedrooms, separate WC, bathroom, separate shower room. The adjoining annexe has a dining/living room, lounge, kitchen, and a bedroom with en suite bathroom.

Outside there is a large agricultural garage, once housing 13 tractors, which would be ideal for storage or working from home (subject to the necessary permissions), two sheds, garden and paddock.
