About this property

  • The farmhouse was built around 1900 and the luxury Scandinavian cabin was constructed in about 2004. The previous and current owners have operated the premises as a successful cattery and kennel business. There is an abundance of versatility for a buyer to develop further residential space or a commercial aspect within the L shaped steading and barn. This would be subject to the purchaser investigating and obtaining the necessary planning consents.

    From the front garden a gravel path leads to the partially glazed front door. The hallway has a study area below the wide staircase to the first floor. The sitting room is a lovely dual aspect room with ceiling cornice, fireplace with open fire and access to the dining room. Accessed from the rear hall is the fully fitted kitchen with an aspect over the courtyard. The kitchen is fitted with modern wall and base units with quartz worktops and splashbacks, Cooke & Lewis gas hob with extractor, Bosch oven / grill, integrated dishwasher and space for a side-by-side American style refrigerator/freezer. Also off the rear hall is the boiler room with oil fired boiler and pressurised water tank along with a storage cupboard. The ground floor bathroom has a white three piece suite with spa style bath and over bath shower, washbasin with vanity unit and WC. Completing the downstairs accommodation is a bedroom with feature granite fireplace and a large window making the most of the views to the surrounding countryside.

    Leading to the first floor the landing has a large window overlooking the garden. The good sized principal bedroom suite has a comprehensive range of built in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom with separate shower enclosure. The three piece white suite has a double end bath and the shower is mains operated. There are two further bedrooms, one of which has a fitted wardrobe and views to the cabin and farmland beyond.

    Scandinavian Style Chalet
    Offering independent residential living space this is charming accommodation for multi-generational living. Alternatively, the property is in turnkey order to potentially generate income as a vacation rental property.
    From a wooden decked terrace a partially glazed door leads to the entrance vestibule and to the hallway. Accessed from here is the open plan sitting room/dining kitchen. The lovely triple aspect sitting room has doors to a sun room and floor to ceiling windows take full advantage of the countryside setting. The kitchen area has NEFF appliances which include an oven / grill, dishwasher, four ring hob with extractor and has ample space for dining. Continuing the feeling of bringing the outdoors in are the patio doors leading to a timber veranda. Also accessed from the hallway is the utility room with sink and plumbing for a washing machine. The bathroom has a three piece white suite with bath with shower over and a spacious airing cupboard. There is a paved patio area to the front of the house.

    The land and gardens include beautiful cut or mown walkways through mature lawns and woodland with trees made up of a variety of deciduous species including oak, beech and elm. The gardens attract a great deal of wildlife and provide peace and tranquillity when meandering. Some areas of the grass pen behind the kennels of the perimeters are deer fenced.

The woodland walks are great for blowing away the cobwebs. The farmhouse is great for everyday living, but I love the enchanting log cabin for visiting family and guests to enjoy their own independent space. The numerous outbuildings are incredibly versatile.
