    This detached property was formerly part of a working farm and was built in the early 1900s with parts dating back to the 17th century. The property is in a very quiet and pleasant rural setting, close to the villages of Westborough and Long Bennington though with excellent access to surrounding countryside, over which there are fabulous far-reaching views across the fields and the neighbouring village church. The house and its garage are both somewhat dated and would benefit from full renovation to bring them up to today's accepted standards, affording a fabulous opportunity for the new owner to personalise the home to their own personal tastes. The house is set within about 15 acres, including gardens and ample off-street parking.

    The accommodation is currently about 1200 sq ft excluding the attached outbuildings, which could be easily converted to create additional space (subject to obtaining the necessary consents). There is also space to extend into the roof. The house is arranged all on one level and has a linear layout, with a relatively flexible floor plan that could use one of the bedrooms as an additional reception room if needed. The accommodation is well proportioned and comprises a small entrance hall opening to the kitchen with its range cooker, a sitting room and onwards to a hallway which provides access to the three good-size double bedrooms. The bathroom is situated on the opposite side of the kitchen and includes the bathroom and a separate cloakroom with WC. Attached to the end of the house is a large store and a number of smaller ancillary storage rooms.

    The grounds are a fantastic highlight and amount to about 15 acres, comprising grassland, gardens and off-street parking. There is also an registered scheduled ancient monument in the field. The garden is mostly lawned and has been well maintained, with attractive borders of shrubs, mature trees and a variety of bedding plants. There is a good-size gravel driveway to the front accessible by a five-bar gate and a double detached garage. As with the house, it is also in need of modernisation.
