In the grounds there is a large stable block, the ground floor of which is currently used as garage space and for storage, and the current owners had planning permission to convert the top floor into two apartments (this has now expired but there are no probable objections to further applications). It has had a new roof and new windows and doors in recent years, and just requires interior refit.
The Guardian's lodge, has had extensive work, a new roof, windows, doors, a conservatory/orangery, as well as having had the old rendering removed to expose the beautiful, original stone work beneath. This work and the repointing of each individual stone, was carried out by local specialist masons to an amazing standard and restored this lovely gite opportunity to it's former glory. After interior refit, it's accommodation would comprise: Lounge, kitchen/diner and orangery on the ground floor, with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, a galleried landing to allow light, and access to the roof terrace overlooking the beautiful rear garden.
This property really must be viewed to truly appreciate it's beauty and size.
