To the immediate rear is an enclosed courtyard with brick walling and a small brick outbuilding.

Beyond the rear driveway is a large section of further lawn, partly covered in former agricultural storage buildings. This land offers tremendous potential for landscaping and cultivation to suit individual requirements and with the removal of the buildings will open up an attractive rural vista.


The vendors are in the process of preparing and submitting a Planning Application to convert the adjoining detached barn into a single residential dwelling, with ancillary accommodation. It is the intention that the property will be offered for sale, and at which time it is likely that all agricultural activities in the adjoining farm buildings will cease and the buildings removed, in conjunction with the sale of the house and the barn. Accordingly there is the possibility for additional areas to be acquired by purchasers who should discuss their requirements further with the selling agent.


Mains electricity and water are connected. Drainage is to a septic tank. Oil fired central heating.


The Tenure is understood to be freehold but this detail has not been confirmed from the Title Deeds. Vacant possession upon completion.
