Sycamore House has been in the same ownership for forty years as a much loved and cared for family home and is now ready to embark on its next chapter in 2020. The property is extremely economic to run, having solar panels offering low electricity bills and a steady income opportunity!

This reception room was originally 3 individual rooms and is now the hub of this delightful house with its central fireplace and black cast iron 'Ulefos' wood burner. There is plenty of space for a large dining suite within this room and of course has super views from all the main windows. Off here is the kitchen, which has space for a breakfast table, with a door that opens to the outside. Upstairs there are three bedrooms, all with rural views, and a family bathroom.
