Full description

An incredible opportunity to buy a renovation project in a tranquil rural location, this period three storey home has so much potential and is set in 1.57 acre of garden and paddocks with a detached brick built former stables / granary barn. NO CHAIN.

Introduction - This is a rare opportunity to purchase a former farmhouse that is now in need of repair and renovation. Set on the rural fringes of a picture perfect hamlet, at the end of a private lane with a sweeping circular drive and grounds to either side, it really epitomises the adage "Location. Location. Location."

The house was built in 1805 primarily of brick (part stone) under a slate roof, it has fallen into disrepair but still maintains features including: wooden floors, fireplaces, sash windows, wooden doors and quaint wall cupboards. Currently comprising: two reception rooms, hall, kitchen, large utility, cloakroom, lean to (formerly used as a garage), on the first floor are two double bedrooms, a further bedroom that could be used as a dressing room and a bathroom; to the second floor are two attic double sized bedrooms.

The grounds are overgrown, but you can see they were once set out well, with original railings to the front garden. The brick built barn was originally used as stables and there are granary steps to the first floor. The grounds extend to approximately one acre.

Property Description - The property needs complete renovation and whilst features in situ are described, all would require some attention.
A canopy porch with a part glazed door leads into the hall, this has stairs to the first floor with a cupboard under, and doors to the utility and two reception rooms. The living room has a tiled open fireplace, sash window to the front, wooden floor, beam and original wooden door. The dining room has a sash window to the front, wooden door, a stone wall with inset large fireplace with woodburner. A large arch leads into the kitchen. This has a window to the side and fitted base and wall units, a Rayburn, beam and door to the utility room. This is a spacious room with a Belfast sink and room for ample appliances. There are doors to the lean to, hall and cloakroom, again this is a large room with a two piece suite. At the rear of the property is a lean to, originally used as a garage but now more suitable for a boot room.

On the first floor is a landing with sash window to the front and doors to the two main double bedrooms, both have sash windows to the front, wooden doors and flooring, beams and a wall cupboard. One has an adjoining door and step down into a third bedroom, which could alternatively be used as a dressing room or nursery. There is a large rear landing / study area with two rooflights, airing cupboard with immersion heater and wooden doors to the previously mentioned bedroom three and to the spacious bathroom.

On the second floor is a landing area with wooden doors to the two double sized bedrooms. Both have windows to the side, beams, wooden floors and doors and some limited headroom.

1.57 Acre Grounds - Set at the end of a private lane leading onto its own drive, is this lovely property. The drive has a circular sweep at the side of the home with a mature copper beech tree in the middle. There is a garden area to both the front and back, all laid to grass with some mature apple and quince trees. The grounds are overgrown but have farmland almost all around with some lovely views. There are two paddock areas, one to each side of the house. The measurements are to be verified.

Outbuilding - At the rear of this area is a brick built barn, formerly stables with steps to the first floor area. In addition is a brick built former privy and a brick built shed.
