Believed to date back to late 1800 as an original farm cottage, this wonderful family home has been extended over the years and now provides an excellent renovation opportunity. The house is brick and timber under a slate roof with rooms that are well proportioned with features of sash windows, fireplaces and a spacious kitchen/breakfast room. The property will benefit from modernisation and updating throughout.
Adjacent to the house is a range of traditional and modern farm/outbuildings including a 1,190 sqft converted annexe barn, three open barns, eleven stables, tack room and home office that have a planning permission for residential redevelopment. These currently provide excellent equine facilities with a manège, arena and horse walker.
