The property is approached off the council roadway by a tarmac drive which leads to the front of the house and to the large parking area to the side. To the left-hand side of the driveway is a raised lawned area with a wild area above that and a stone paved path and patio leading to the front of the house.

To the right-hand side of the drive is a timber framed, open fronted shed and stables (29' x 29'6). Adjacent to this is a further block and timber dual stable and tack room divided into two (14'2 x 10'7) and (13'9 x 11'). Adjoining this is a lean-to store (21' x 8').

Adjacent to the yard is a small polytunnel and a raised timber workshop with electric, power and light (23'10 x 12'6). The drive continues into one of the fields where there is a six-bay timber and galvanised iron open fronted sheep and implement storage shed.

THE LAND

The LandThe land is comprised of several useful enclosures and laid to just over 20 acres of productive pastureland. The fields rise gently away from the farmstead and most can be accessed from the single lane track which forms the southern boundary of the farm. At the far end, at its highest point, is a large pond which feeds a natural stream serving most of the fields. From here are some fantastic country views.

The permanent pasture is well suited to grazing all types of livestock and with the existing stables and miles of bridle paths on the doorstep, should also be suitable for equine use. Equally, those looking for conservation projects should not be disappointed.

SERVICES

Mains electricity, private water and drainage. A wood burner provides heating and the property is extensively double glazed. Photovoltaic panels produce cheaper electric bills and generate an average income of around £1500 p.a.NOTE: None of the services or installations have been tested by the Agents

BASIC PAYMENTS & ENVIRONMENTAL SCHEMES
