    The farmhouse is stone built with a slate roof and sits on the western fringe of the farmstead. The ground floor of the property comprises of an entrance hall, kitchen, utility room, living room, snug, dining room and storage room.

The formal garden to the south of the property includes a lawned area with established borders and shrubs, beyond this is a further walled garden which is a wonderful sheltered space together with beboles which are incorporated into the stone walls. The western garden includes orchard trees and shrubs with a central lawn area flanked by impressive mature trees providing shelter to the north.

    Farm buildings
    The traditional stone farm building sits to the east of the farmhouse and is arranged in an L shape with slate roof. The building has retained many period features such as cobble and flag floors and the most wonderful beams and timber floors, most is double height with large open spaces. The buildings currently provides storage, but would make the most amazing conversion to perhaps an additional dwelling, holiday cottages or annexe/office or party space (subject to the necessary consents).

    Adjacent to the traditional farm building is a small stable block, again this is stone built with a slate roof and in an excellent condition. There are further small buildings in the gardens and grounds such as a piggery, small garden shed and former outhouse.

    In addition, there is a modern farm building which sits south of the traditional buildings (17.7m x 13.3m), this is ideally suited to livestock or could be repurposed for equine or alternative uses. The building is a steel portal frame with cantilever, fibre cement roof, concrete floor and panel walls, external feed barrier and cattle race adjacent.

    The farmland lies in a ring fence surrounding the farmstead extending to about 12.7 acres, divided and enclosed by traditional stone walls. The pasture is interspersed with matures trees, which together with the undulation make for a very attractive setting.
