There is also development opportunity by way of two large traditional stone barns (subject to all necessary consents/approvals).

The three bedroom farmhouse has been recently renovated by the current owners (including new boiler, water filter system and new septic tank) and adjoining this is a two storey, one bedroom cottage perfect for holiday letting or offering additional accommodation to the main house.

Farmhouse And Cottage - The farmhouse has been refurbished throughout, including; new kitchen, bathroom, new oak floors, installation of new boiler and multi-fuel stove, and offers living room, dining room, study (currently used as an indoor tack room), three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. There is also extensive new utility room which has separate external access to that from the study and provides a fantastic boot room/utility space (formerly the old cow byre) complete with stone floors, plumbing for washer/dryer and cupboard housing the newly installed water filter system.

The adjoining cottage has an open plan kitchen/living to the ground floor and a double bedroom and shower room to the first and is classed as separate dwelling with no restriction on use or occupancy.

Within the yard is an additional detached, two storey stone barn which has enjoyed historic planning permission (unrestricted use/occupancy) to convert to form a separate 2/3 bed dwelling.
