OUTSIDE The property is approached along a pretty country lane with the house standing high in front of you forming an imposing sight. The driveway is tarmacadam and sweeps round between the house and the traditional buildings to a wide turning and parking space with railings. The front garden ends in a 'haha' with a drop down to the field below, which is also included in the sale. There are extensive grounds on the other two sides, including lawns, flowerbeds, terraced areas, paths, screening, etc.
THE FARMBUILDINGS A traditional range of stone buildings of great character forming an L-shape and with planning consent for three individual residential or holiday units, with some of the work already commenced to make the planning consent 'live.' Plans available on request.In addition there is a STONE STABLE at the bottom of the yard and a charming little PIG COTT. Beyond the buildings is a large gravelled area which was once the site of a modern farm building which would make a great outdoor arena, or has a variety of other potential storage uses.
. The Offa's Dyke footpath skirts this area to the east and means that the property has the benefit of great potential for holiday use, whilst giving the house complete privacy from any potential users.
. An additional 8 acres of land in the field below the house is also available at a separately negotiable figure.
