A superb opportunity to purchase a former public house with outline planning consent granted to configure the current property and erect a separate detached dwelling. The property as it stands would benefit from some modernisation with the bar and pool room evident from the historic public house which was closed some 20 years ago. The accommodation affords four bedrooms and a number of versatile reception rooms and has an attached self contained bedsit. The views to the front and rear over open farmland are stunning.
