About this property

  • This lovely stone built cottage has been upgraded to create a delightful three bedroomed rural home with equestrian facilities, an arena and has a two storey barn with stabling which is ripe for conversion, subject to necessary planning consent.

    The property has an air source heating system with under-floor heating to the ground floor, all fitted in 2014 and was upgraded at that time more generally.
    Set back from this quiet country lane behind a gated entrance the main house provides an entrance porch with a seat, a front door opening into the welcoming kitchen with an electric AGA, stone floors and ‘in frame' bespoke cupboards with granite surfaces over, basket drawers and a Belfast sink. It has a bespoke dresser unit with cupboards and an oak work surface; there is a dual aspect and a French door to the rear terrace.

    There are two delightful reception rooms including a dining or sitting room with a beautiful local stone feature wall, stone floor and a wood burning stove. The second reception room is on the other side of the kitchen and is a lovely living room with wide oak floor boards, a dual aspect with a French door to the rear terrace. The deep stone hearth holds a wood burning stove and the fireplace recess is stone backed. A traditional boxed in staircase leads up to the first floor.

    The landing has delightful Victorian tongue and groove panelling and leads to three double bedrooms including a vaulted principal bedroom with a window seat. The adjoining house bathroom has a roll top double ended bath, a separate walk in shower, a low level w.c. and a wash hand basin. Both the second and third bedrooms are doubles and have windows to the front.

    The barn stands separately to the left of the main entrance driveway and extending over two storeys presents multiple opportunities to create a studio, offices, provide outstanding storage or, with planning permission, create ancillary accommodation, holiday accommodation or simply a split level games room space.

    Currently the lower ground floor has a garage, two stables and the original shippon, whilst at first floor level, accessed from a set of stone steps on the outside, is a workshop store and on a lower level, a hay loft. An intriguing building with lots of scope.

    There is a utility room and a w.c. with a wash hand basin to the side of the property. A carport adjoins the main house.

    The land extends to about 3 acres and was previously used for equestrian purposes and includes a field shelter and a rubber surfaced manège. There is a turn out paddock and the driveway splits on entry to lead to a space which will easily accommodate a horse box or trailer.

    Services: Air source heating, private water supply and drainage, mains electricity.
