We understand the property was built in the 1800’s and the current family have owned the property for around 53 years. The property has been used as a smallholding during the vendors ownership. Therefore, the property has not been offered on the market for sale for some time and similar opportunities are few and far between.

The house comprises three bedrooms but would benefit from full modernisation, or potentially a replacement dwelling, subject to the necessary planning permission. There is a redundant bungalow which would also be suitable for replacement subject to the necessary consents. The plot enjoys views over the open countryside behind
