In a quiet unspoilt rural location designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), away from passing traffic, this unique property offers the opportunity to create a fantastic country home and use the land for ponies, horticulture, conservation or some other amenity use. This characterful farmhouse now requires renovation, and externally benefits from brick window reveals and lintels, rag slate roof with decorative ridge tiles and pair of brick chimney stacks.
From the entrance hall, doors lead to both ground floor reception rooms that are full of character features including beamed ceilings, handsome slate fireplaces, wood panelling and many slate flag floors. A modern extension to the rear provides fitted kitchen, family bathroom and rear porch. From the entrance hall, a traditional staircase rises to three first floor bedrooms, each having lovely views to the front.
Although overgrown, the enclosed front garden offers the opportunity to restore the former glory and create sheltered sitting out areas.
Surrounding the property on three sides and extending to about 11.4 acres (4.6ha), the relatively level and gently sloping land is currently laid to grass and divided into five enclosures by mature Cornish hedges complemented by an array of trees including beech, crab apple, sycamore and oak trees.
