The Property

First time to the market in over eighty six years, this very much cherished home offers comfortable and versatile accommodation with scope to further enhance and style to one's own taste and needs. Believed to have been three cottages and dating to the 1700's, the cottage retains many period features, such as, deep sills to some of the windows and window seats, open fireplaces, thick stone walls, picture rails and some wood paneling. Catering to modern day living, the property benefits from uPVC double glazing and electric economy 7 heating. The cottage at one stage was home to three generations of our selling family and could again lend itself to home a dependent relative, or be split to provide an income and of course used wholly as a family home.

The Outbuildings

Lying to the rear and side of the cottage there is a range of outbuildings and farm yard, which include a variety of barn styles, kennels and stables as well as open garages. The outbuildings present a development opportunity, subject to permission and could easily be turned into holiday let accommodation, or renovated to their former state. Thereby, offering potential use as a small holding or equestrian property.

Outside

The cottage sits in its own generously sized garden, which is mostly laid to lawn and enclosed by a low stone wall to the front. The main body of the land lies to the rear and side of the cottage forming a rough triangle and is currently pasture.
