The front door opens into a welcoming and spacious hallway which gives you access to all the downstairs living space and the stairway leads to the first-floor accommodation. On the left-hand side as, you enter through the front door is the dining room, a naturally light space thanks to the dual aspect windows.

Opposite the dining room there is the smaller of the two living rooms, similar to the dining room this room has plenty of natural light and a working log burner.

On the right-hand side of the hallway and opposite the utility space you have another very useful room- with added built in storage, which could be used as an office, a playroom or a downstairs bedroom.

At the end of the hallway and to the left-hand side there is the larger of the two living rooms. With a large window this room too has plenty of natural light and a fireplace taking centre stage. This room could become the main dining room given its close proximity to the kitchen. At the very end of the hallway is the kitchen. The kitchen is an impressive traditional farmhouse style and has a range of wall and base units, a large and useful island, space for a variety of white goods and a Royal Green Aga, with twin hobs and two ovens. There is space for a large kitchen table and chairs. Behind the kitchen and at the very rear of the property there is a utility room which has space and plumbing for both a washing machine and tumble drier.

From the utility room there is access to the outside buildings which could be converted (STPP) to create a wonderful Air B&B or a garage.

On the first floor, you are welcomed by a spacious landing that provides access to all the bedrooms and the two bathrooms. Four of the bedrooms are very good-sized doubles and two small doubles. The main bedroom overlooks the garden and its varied flower beds, with the added benefit of built-in storage.


The garden is mainly laid to lawn and is fully enclosed, decorated with a wide variety of trees and shrubs. There is a pretty al-fresco dining area, but the garden is predominantly a blank canvass where a new owner could put their own stamp on.

There is parking for multiple cars on the hard standing by the paddock. The Paddock is approx. 1.38 acres in size and is mainly used for grazing sheep.
