Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A rare opportunity to acquire a substantial six/seven double bedroom detached period farmhouse situated in open countryside with panoramic open views, within two thirds of an acre of gardens. Dating back to 1809, the property is Grade II listed and offers a wealth of original features including heavily beamed ceilings, original doors, fireplaces and vaulted cellars. The property generally needs upgrading and modernisation and offers a superb project for those wishing to restore a large period farmhouse to their own taste and specification. The property is situated in glorious open countryside with a small handful of neighbouring converted barns between the popular villages of Wysall and Rempstone.

Location

The farm is situated approximately a mile outside the popular village of Rempstone on the land to Wysall. The location is ideal for fast access to Nottingham, Loughborough, Leicester and Melton Mowbray and is also particularly convenient for the nearby DNRC at Stamford Hall and East Midlands Airport. The farm has been in the same ownership for several generations and now requires general upgrading and modernisation. A formal staircase from the first floor landing leads to the second floor to an excellent range of second floor rooms ideal for conversion to three/four bedrooms and bathroom which would provide a total of six or seven bedrooms and two bathrooms.
