    About this property

    • Botany Farmhouse has been in the same ownership for over forty years and it is fair to say that the property is now in need of a certain amount of modernisation and refurbishment. The Farmhouse is Grade II listed and believed to date from circa 1780. The house is of stone and cob construction with a tile roof. It is set within a secluded setting and the charming property has a wealth of character features. The accommodation comprises the following: four double bedrooms with bath and shower rooms, three reception rooms plus a kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen/breakfast room is at the heart of the house, off which there is a separate dining room. The sitting room has attractive exposed wooden ceiling beams with a large inglenook fireplace housing a wood burning stove. The cosy snug situated just off the kitchen/breakfast room also benefits from a wood burning stove set into an inglenook fireplace. Upstairs are four double bedrooms with a bathroom and two shower rooms; one of which is en suite.

      Botany Farmhouse is approached via a track and there is a gravel parking area to the front of the house. The garden is mainly to the front of the property and laid to lawn with mature planting. To the side of the house is the field, the land in total extends to just under an acre. There are a couple of outbuildings; a large workshop and a store.
