Dating back to the early 19th Century, first glimpses of Monkhouse Farm are most impressive, with its attractive stone Ashlar façade and pretty Welsh slate roof. Justifiably Grade II Listed of Historical and Architectural importance, the property is totally untainted by inappropriate modernisation and is bursting with charm and character with many period features remaining, including wonderful flagstone flooring, original fireplaces, stone window seats and deep mullion windows.

There are many rooms in the house worth mentioning, including the Sitting Room which is well proportioned and light with a very attractive stone fireplace and wood burning grate. There is also a pretty stone window seat and flagstone flooring.

The Kitchen and Dining Room is a superb room and ideal for modern living with potential to create a fantastic bespoke open plan Kitchen and Dining area with its own stone fireplace and gas stove. The Kitchen and Dining Room is a superb room and ideal for modern living with potential to create a fantastic bespoke open plan Kitchen and Dining area with its own stone fireplace and gas stove.
The principal Bedrooms are situated on the First Floor with four Bedrooms, a Family Bathroom and a Shower Room. These are lovely and light and
well proportioned and one has views over the delightful gardens.

The real surprise, however, is the delightful and sizeable garden and the fantastic outbuildings.
The outbuildings include a sizeable Barn which at the moment is used for storage with former Stables and a former Cider House. Part of this is also used as a one bedroom annexe which could (with the necessary Planning Consents) be turned into further accommodation, with perhaps a Games Room and Office. The former Stables could also be turned back into very good stabling.

The garden is absolutely delightful with a large lawned area and vegetable garden and well stocked borders and islands. The garden and paddock amounts to about 1.3 acres and is safe for children with a lovely revolving Summer House and open Barn and a Piggery.

All in all this would make a wonderful family home in a very convenient and popular location.
