Description This traditional five bedroom farmhouse is accessed down a private drive and offers a unique opportunity with great scope for expansion (subject to the relevant planning permissions being granted) utilising an attached stone built barn, along with the benefit of two stable blocks equating four stables and is set within about 5.65 acres.

The farmhouse internally is approached via a front entrance porch providing access to the Lounge with a feature Lakeland slate gas fire surround and hearth, the room benefits from a lovely dual aspect views to both the front and rear paddocks. The Living room is to the centre of the property with access off to the Dining room and rear hallway along with the stairs to first floor level also having a traditional open fire and dual aspect windows. The Breakfast Kitchen, located to the rear of the property has been recently upgraded all with fitted base and wall mounted units, fitted double electric oven and hob and space for a dishwasher. Further beyond the kitchen is the Utility room with rear access door and ample space for several white goods to be fitted along with the housing for the oil fired central heating boiler. A newly installed shower room and w.c. are accessed off the rear hallway which has an entrance door from the garage within the attached stone barn.

From the living room, stairs lead to the first floor landing providing access to all five bedrooms. The master bedroom has fitted wardrobes and superb dual aspect views over the property's land and surrounding countryside, entrance driveway and stables. The guest bedroom has an en-suite shower room and fitted wardrobes benefiting from views to the front aspect and there are three further bedrooms; one with fitted wardrobes; another having a shower cubicle and sink with rear aspect and a single bedroom with sink and window to the rear. The family bathroom and airing cupboard off the landing all complete the first floor level.
 

Externally The property is approached down a long private drive between its own land either side from the boundary. A large parking sweep to the front has ample space for several vehicles and a horse box, if required. There are gardens that surround the property itself with various mature planting beds and dry stone wall perimeter with patio areas to both the front and rear.

The attached traditional stone barn with continued stone tiled roof off the house offers a garage, two former shippons with large bays, a workshop and a store to the ground floor level with a large hay loft above. The building has an expired planning permission to convert into residential accommodation.

The four stables are within two substantial detached buildings, one of stone and block construction and the other of block construction both having similar corrugated roof sheeting. The two buildings provide four large stables each with gated fronts and concrete floors. The tack & feed room is within the stone stable block that forms a secure gated courtyard to the front of the large stone barn adjacent to the house.
 

Land In all the property equates to approximately 5.65 acres split by the entrance driveway into two large paddocks. All recently fenced and have water connected. The front paddock is mainly flat with the rear paddock rising up to a woodland on the boundary providing good shelter.
NB: There is a foot path which runs along the far westerly boundary.
