A truly unique, lovingly refurbished and beautifully extended, detached 2-3 bed house with additional accommodation for use as studio/holiday let/granny annex, all completed to a high quality ethical standard. Set within its own landscaped gardens and land of 11 acres, viewings are highly recommended to appreciate the space and lifestyle opportunity on offer. The property has undergone extensive works, both inside and out over recent years, with the vendors making every endeavour to create a home that appeals aesthetically whilst remaining ethical, eco-friendly and economical.

The converted Holiday Let/studio with woodburning stove, kitchen/dining area and separate shower room has been completed to the same exacting standards and is earning regular income.
