About this property

  • The House - A five bedroom period farmhouse of attractive brick construction under a tile roof occupying a south facing position overlooking lawned gardens enhanced by mature specimen trees. The accommodation, which is illustrated on the floorplan, provides family accommodation over two floors extending to approximately 2,343 square feet. Although the house does require further investment and modernisation it offers an opportunity for a purchaser to create a family house to suit their personal requirements which could include extending the accommodation into the adjoining two bed cottage which would add a further 458 square feet, and perhaps even into the adjoining kennel and stores (subject to planning).

    The current accommodation briefly includes:
    Kitchen with feature brick alcove and range of modern floor and wall units incorporating integral dishwasher and split-level oven with four ring electric hob. Full width sitting room with attractive fireplace, back stairs off as well as a door to the courtyard. Dining room with door to the garden, study, living room and cloak room.

    On the first floor, there is the principal bedroom with en-suite shower room, guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms, a single bedroom and a house bathroom. The utility room lies across the covered passage from the kitchen where the central heating boiler is situated which has been replaced in the last couple of years.

    Cottage - The cottage includes an open plan living room on the ground floor together with two bedrooms and a shower room on the first floor. It requires modernisation but could be incorporated into the main house, provide staff accommodation or be let to provide income.

    Outbuildings - The traditional brick courtyard range lies to the north of the house comprising single storey ranges to the east and west with a double storey brick barn in part of the south range. Most recently the buildings have been used for general storage and garaging purposes although they do include two outside WCs and in all provide 6,000 square feet of attractive buildings, offering potential for a variety of uses. There is a separate single storey brick and tile outbuilding to the east of the entrance drive which has previously been used for selling produce from the holding and benefits from WC, shower and basin to one end which may offer potential for alternative uses subject to planning.

    Farm Buildings - The main farm buildings lie away from the house and outbuildings allowing separation between commercial and residential activities.
    12 bay steel portal frame general purpose building (approx. 38m x 12m) with fibre cement roof, part block wall and part steel sheet cladding. Concrete floor to 9m with the rest earth floor. Ventilated roof ridge.
    8 bay general purpose building (approx. 25m x 12m) timber and steel construction, part block walling, part steel side and roof cladding with ventilated ridge. Concrete feed passage to part with the rest being earth floor.
    6 bay barn (approx. 25m x 12m) including leanto. Mainly open sides and steel sheet roof with the floor mainly earth with some poor concrete.
    1 small GP shed (approx. 11m x 9m) with open front, concrete floor, metal roof sheet and side cladding.

    Land - The land which is all down to grass is level and divides into paddocks of various sizes offering flexibility for grazing. The main paddock (6 acres), which has been recently re-fenced, lies to the west of the buildings with smaller paddocks between the house and the railway lines and adjacent to the driveway. Well established shelter belts provide screening from the railway line.
