    This fabulous character farmhouse has been beautifully restored over many years, and is a credit to our vendors careful stewardship in maintaining this period classic 'gem' in a wonderful authentic condition. The home has been stylishly internally decorated throughout in neutral pastel shades naturally creating a lovely ambience.

    The farmhouse has painted rendered external elevations, under a pitched slate tiled roof complemented by terracotta ridge tiles, traditional wooden framed sash windows and warmed by gas (LPG ) fired central heating. The property is further warmed during the winter months by the impressive stone built fireplace featuring a multi fuel stove situated in the dining room, together with an electric 'Aga' in the kitchen providing the cooking and extra ambient warmth to the building fabric. The farmhouse has it's own private well water supply, together with it's own private drainage.

    The farmhouse offers a plethora of character features synonymous with a classic property of this ilk, including open beam ceilings, flagstone slate floor in utility room, period doors, stunning 'Fired Earth' hand made ceramic tiled floors in the kitchen and dining room, wooden sash windows and original fireplaces etc.

    The front oak door leads into the character dining room offering an impressive granite built inglenook style fireplace incorporating a large multi fuel stove, together with a fabulous 'Fired Earth' ceramic tiled floor.
