Charming farmhouse with stunning views, holiday cottages and land.
The spacious entrance hall currently used as a lounge/snug has a feature open fireplace. A door leads to a further reception room with potential for a home office or library. The inner hall gives access to the turned staircase leading to the first floor and also to the kitchen, the formal dining room and to a cloakroom with useful coat storage.
The large formal dining room has windows to the rear and side looking onto the private house garden and a further door leading to the sitting room.
The well-planned bespoke kitchen has solid oak units with black granite work surfaces, an LPG/electric AGA, double Belfast sink, an integrated dishwasher and fridge freezer. Double doors lead from the kitchen to a rear hall with a stone flagged floor and external doors making this a useful boot room. A further door from the kitchen leads to the family dining room with exposed beams and a walk in pantry. Leading off from this room is a utility room with oak cupboards, space for a washer/dryer, additional fridges and useful built in storage cupboard. There is also loft access from this room.
From the family dining room there are double doors to a large lounge, with windows to the side and doors to the conservatory. An exposed brick and oak mantle fireplace housing a log burning stove and inset bookcases make this a comfortable and impressive space.
A particular feature is the sizable conservatory which allows natural light to flood into the rear of the house, with double doors leading directly onto the private rear garden.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms to the left of the hall both with fitted wardrobes and en-suite shower rooms.
Leading from the separate inner hall are a further three double bedrooms, two with en suite facilities.
Externally there is a lengthy private driveway adjacent to a fenced paddock which leads to a large turning and parking area to the rear of the house. Beyond is a gated yard with access to the substantial outbuildings, one of which houses the 100kw biomass boiler and 14 ton hopper. There are three stables and additional parking for a number of vehicles.
The main Farmhouse has a particularly private and charming landscaped rear garden accessed from the conservatory and utility. Mainly laid to lawn, there are paved seating areas, a large feature pond, beautiful summer house and mature planted beds with established trees and hedging providing a high degree of privacy.
There are six pretty cottages, adjacent to the main farmhouse, currently operated as a successful self-catering and bed and breakfast business. The cottages all have their own allocated parking directly outside. The well-established business has real potential for further growth and already has many repeat customers, with future bookings already in the diary.
The property has been with its current owners for the past 25 years and has been lovingly developed and improved by them during this time, including the creation of a successful luxury Bed & Breakfast and holiday cottage business which has the scope to be taken even further by an incoming purchaser.
