    About this property

    • With nine acres of farmland, this characterful family home was originally built in the 1700s and later sympathetically extended in the 1980s, and has been in the same family since 1909. The house is of a stone construction and has many original features, including exposed beams and brick detailing, a cast iron and tile fireplace and solid wooden doors, which are complemented by a traditional country décor scheme that offers great potential for personalisation. The largest of the two barns will be included in the sale, offering a range of possible uses and prospects for income generation. The Pole Barn could also be available subject to separate negotiation.

      The well proportioned accommodation extends to about 2800 sq ft and offers a number of reception rooms to make it well suited to entertaining at home: on the ground floor, the entrance hall leads to a family room and charming country-style kitchen with an AGA range cooker, and there is a cosy living room with a wood burning stove (in working order but not lined), and a conservatory which all link onto each other. Within the newer part of the home is the formal dining room and a number of useful additional rooms for storage, including a utility room, boot room, a home office/study and a cloakroom with WC. Upstairs there is a principal bedroom with en suite WC and eaves storage, four further bedrooms and two bath/shower rooms.

      Carr Dyke House comes with about nine acres of land. This includes a large portal framed shed which extends to over 3300 sq ft. There is also a small wooded area. The grass paddock extend to about eight acres including two field shelters. A further 11 acres is available as a separate lot (subject to separate negotiation). Much of the area has been down to high level stewardship for over 20 years leaving it suitable for further enrichment of the environment. The property is approached via a shared gated driveway which leads to a block-paved private parking area for a large number of vehicles. To the rear there is a mature garden laid to lawn and enclosed by a variety of trees and shrubs which provide privacy to a lovely, paved patio area that's ideal for outdoor dining.

    This is a lovely home that has been in the same family for three generations, it has far reaching views across open fields and I especially like the huge agricultural barn which could be used for so many different things
