The property offers a lovely double fronted red brick façade under a tile hung roof with lead casement windows and has been sympathetically extended in recent years to provide additional living space.

The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with bespoke, hand crafted oak units, granite work surfaces and a Cannon range cooker, with the study benefiting from a wood burning stove. The adjoining utility room is fitted with a range of complimenting units with further rooms to this part including a laundry room, bathroom and additional wc.
A stylish double aspect link with doors opening out to both sides connects the original cottage to the superb extension, comprising a double aspect sitting room with vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, wood burning stove and oak flooring and a wonderful triple aspect garden room with pitched glazed roof, slate flooring and double doors opening onto the garden.
The bedroom accommodation is situated in the original house, where a stairwell leads up to a small landing providing access to two double bedrooms, both offering built-in storage facilities.
The property is accessed via a short forest track leading to a large metal gate opening onto a driveway providing off road parking for multiple vehicles. Set within the lovely grounds are a number of outbuildings including a large detached double garage with store room and stairs leading to a loft room above, a stunning garden room/cabin with pitched roof, a 60’ cattle barn, a pretty ‘little barn’ and three additional outbuildings all set down the side of the main property.
