The property comprises an extended and refurbished two storey farmhouse property which was built we understand in the 1930's. The property is of mass concrete construction for the original house and with concrete block wall construction for the extension part together with a pitched tiled roof. There is an attractive car port annexe to the rear of the home.

The property stands on its own grounds of circa 0.2718 acres we understand and the property is contained in Folio GY26857.
The house is in very good condition and well maintained having been modernised and fully refurbished in 2002.

The property has PVC double glazed windows and oil fired central heating.

The refurbishment included all new central heating, rewiring, dry-lining, replumbed, alarm installation. There is a feature oil fired Stanley range to the kitchen for cooking and heating (heats the radiators and water). The back kitchen has a modern fitted kitchen and the main sitting room has a feature fire place with solid timber floors and timber panel ceiling. There is also a downstairs toilet.

An attractive feature is the car port area to the rear annexe which connects to outside stores. In addition there is a valuable separate shed to the side of the house and measures approx. 30 x 22 ft and a single storey annexe of approx. 15 x 22 ft with ancillary yard.


Excellent opportunity to acquire a characteristic attractive refurbished old style farmhouse offering excellent accommodation of generous proportions and presented in excellent order combining modern refurbishment with the charm of the old farmhouse character.
