The cottage is a versatile space, currently let providing a rental income, although would make an ideal annexe to the main house. There is a modern fitted kitchen with granite worksurfaces and integrated appliances and the sitting area boasts a floor to ceiling window to the side elevation. Upstairs is a charming double bedroom with en suite shower room and double doors from the bedroom lead out to a raised, enclosed patio. N.B. This property has its own postcode and is effectively an additional separate residential dwelling.
The well maintained buildings can be utilised for a variety of uses and are briefly described below:
General purpose Shed
Fully insulated with sectional door, ground and first floor storage areas, WC. Attached garage with double doors.
Two insulated steel containers (36′ x 8′) for storage, with power and light.
Brick built, under a new slate roof, presently for storage/office use.
Three wooden stables with tack room.
Being the former mill, the barn attached to the main house is currently unused but is structurally sound and has a new, steel roof structure clad in natural slate. It offers huge potential for the right purchaser to further develop, subject to the necessary permissions.
Timber Cabin (The Lodge)
40′ x 20′ two bedroom cabin. Open plan kitchen/living/dining room with modern fixtures and fittings and patio doors to an external raised decked area. Double bedroom, single bedroom and shower room.
The cabin can be used as ancillary accommodation to the main house, but a purchaser would require the relevant permissions to use it as a full time residence. Adjacent to the cabin are two further timber buildings; one is presently used as a utility room and the other could make an ideal home office.
The land offers good quality grazing, extending to 13.66 acres (5.53 hectares). The land benefits from two roadside access points. The land has been well managed, stock proof and in good heart.
