The property is one of 3 barn conversions set around a central courtyard with a shared access laid to chippings and private parking, there is adequate room for a garage to be built subject to the necessary consents. To the front of the property is a gravelled courtyard and footpath to the front door whilst to the rear is a private garden which is arranged on two levels and is laid mostly to patio with a variety of plants and shrubs and a built-in stone barbecue. There is gated access to a private path which leads to the land, alternatively, vehicular access can be gained via a gate adjacent to the parking area and this leads to the office and workshop with potential for a variety of uses.
Altogether the land extends to approximately 3 acres of gently sloping ground which is south-facing aspect with far-reaching countryside views. There is also a summerhouse which is great for entertaining.
To the south boundary there is a mature orchard with a variety of fruit trees and willows, a pond which feeds a brook on the boundary and an additional area of land with post, rail and stock fencing. The land comprises a number of paddocks with post, rail and stock fencing which currently house pigs, llamas, lambs and pygmy goats. Each paddock has a field shelter and holding pen.
There is a further garden with a large vegetable plot and a sizeable chicken enclosure. The workshop is currently being used as barn and feed store with light and power connected and is fronted by a fenced concrete yard. To one side there is a large hay store whilst to the rear is a lean-to providing additional storage. There are a number of additional sheds, tractor and log stores.
Office/workshop 14 m x 4.71 m total (45’11” x 15’5″ total)
This multi-purpose building is currently divided with one half being used as an office (5.94 m x 4.71 m) from which the current owners are running a business with light and power connected and internet connectivity whilst the other half is set up as a barn and feed store (8.06 m x 4.29 m). It is felt that this area does offer further potential to convert subject to the necessary consents. There is a lean-to greenhouse with a grapevine to one side.
The driveway is owned by this property with costs for maintenance split between the 3 properties. The septic tank is also shared by the 3 properties and maintenance is split. The former oil tank remains in situ and could be re-connected if desired.
