About this property

  • Carncrees farmhouse dates we believe from around the late 1800's and follows a fairly traditional internal layout with enclosed front porch leading through to a large reception room with wood burning stove off which is the farmhouse kitchen/dining room.

    From the sitting room is a rather lovely turned staircase which leads up to a generous central landing off which are three double bedrooms, one of which has an en suite shower room, a fourth single bedroom and family bathroom.

    The farmhouse kitchen has kitchen with breakfast island at one end and dining at the other. The kitchen is fitted with a Bosch single oven and microwave, two door oil Aga, five ring gas hob, boiling tap, compactor bin and space for American style fridge.

    Off the kitchen is the utility room with a further two reception or bedrooms. The current owners have historically used this as a separate one-bedroom annex with own front door, but more recently as part of the house with a utility/boot and coats room with door to front garden along with a study and second reception room.

    The property offers a lot of flexibility to be either a large family home, as it has been for the current vendors for over 26 years, or a multi-generational home. There is also enormous scope to create either a separate annex or a possible rental income from converting some of the outbuildings*(see agent note below and subject to relevant planning).

    Outbuildings and grounds
    The property is accessed from a long private lane which Carncrees owns, with the two neighbouring properties having a right of access.

    At the front and rear of the house are well established gardens with a variety of planting and stone wall boundaries that separate the gardens from the three separate paddocks, outbuildings and quarry.

    The quarry has a thriving selection of fish and huge potential for other recreational uses such as swimming and boating.

    The large L-shaped open fronted stone barn is currently used for parking for a selection of vehicles along with a large area of hard standing for numerous cars.

    A little further up the track from this area is a detached studio with a pre-app planning application to convert into a two-bedroom single storey dwelling*(see agent note*)

    Agent Notes-

    - Detached studio: Planning application No. PA22/00849/preapp

    - The private lane leading up to the farmhouse has a ROW for White Owl Barn and Lanefield House. There is an agreement between the three properties to maintain the lane on a shared basis as and when required.
    There is a footpath that runs through the yard and across the top field. The boundary of this footpath is well defined and does not have any impact on the privacy of the farmhouse

    - Boundary line on aerial image is not accurate and is only an indication and must not be relied on.
