A country house with potential for further development, this property was originally 2 cottages constructed in stone. The cottages are possibly over three hundred years old and have some nice original features in the stonework; a large stone Charentaise fireplace, flagstones, alcoves, an original stone sink with window and a small stone medieval head above door on the exterior. There are lots of wooden beams and it is full of character. The house is for sale due to a bereavement and requires some renovation work.
The upstairs is undeveloped which could add an additional 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a dressing room/storage. The property would make an excellent 6/7 bedroom house if fully renovated. It is in a tranquil location and would make a great B&B.
The house has a front garden, large side garden with a stone wall separating it from the front garden which would be a fantastic location for a pool. There is a large brick built BBQ and a small pond with tap and electrics. There is a rear garden, overlooking meadow land to the left looking down onto the river Clan. There is also a rear driveway leading up to the road with a block shed structure on the left. The garden has power points and water taps. Beyond the rear garden is an arboretum - or area of ornamental woodland - which has become neglected but which has some fine mature trees: willow, spruce, pines and cherry plus a range of shrubs.
