This delightful stone built cottage property still retains many of its original period features and is well presented throughout with double glazing to most windows and propane gas fired central heating. There is much to love about this property including the delightful mature cottage gardens, the outstanding countryside views and large paddock which will clearly appeal to those with equestrian interests. In addition, there is a substantial timber agricultural barn (recently constructed) with secure store room the whole of which could easily be divided into loose boxes, tack room and storage. Alternative uses may also be possible. In brief, the accommodation includes: Sitting Room, L' Shaped Kitchen/Diner, Utility Room, Cloakroom, 2 Double Bedrooms and Bathroom. The property is approached via a gated entrance with driveway providing extensive parking for a number of vehicles which in turn leads to the attached single garage. For those keen on gardening the formal cottage gardens and kitchen garden form a particular feature and there is a substantial lawned area to the rear providing excellent space for a range of uses which in turn leads into the large paddock. This is without doubt an exceptional opportunity and can only be fully appreciated by visiting the property. Viewing is strictly by appointment only through: Farrons Estate Agents | 01934 842000.
