The farmhouse offers a welcoming reception hall, large living room and a breakfast kitchen with Aga together with a useful utility and cloakroom on the ground floor and four good bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor. The substantial stone and slate detached barn converted by the vendors offers a large two bedroom apartment with living room and dining kitchen at first floor level ideal for family or friends. Beneath the barn is double integral garage and useful stores and to the side of the farmhouse a useful potting/boiler shed. There is plenty of parking and turning, formal and informal gardens and woodland and the meadow (3.53 acres) all extending to approximately 8 acres (3.2 sq hectares).
