The land
The property benefits from being set in the heart of approximately 3.28 acres of surrounding pastureland.
The land is ring fenced that includes two paddocks. The land is ideally suited for equestrian and small holding use, being excellent grass growing pasture. There is also an area of unimproved habitat rich wetland that is un-drained purposefully to enhance the biodiversity. In addition to this a pond located on the driveway.
Behind the property is a beautifully maintained productive traditional kitchen garden with raised vegetable boarder, a green house and paved pathway.

The outbuildings
Located at the end of the drive is a useful brick outbuilding for storage. In the courtyard to the righthand side is a row of sandstone buildings ideally suited for livestock or storage.
To the opposite side of the yard is a most impressive and imposing traditional brick outbuilding. This building has previously benefitted from a planning consents both for conversion into 2 dwelling (ref: OS/08/15508) and also conversion into an annex/ ancillary accommodation including office and games room (09/00411/LBC). We understand there has been a technical start made to the planning consent, however the buyer will have to satisfy themselves this is an extant consent.
