Having been home to the same family for some 90 years, there is now the opportunity for a new family to take over both this traditional farmhouse, as well as the attached bungalow, with the asking price being for the purchase of BOTH homes together. The farmhouse and bungalow are independent of each other, though offer potential to be combined into one larger home, or for the bungalow to be used to accommodate an extended family living situation. The total plot spans around 0.4 acres and while currently it is mostly used as mature gardens, there is also development potential here, should a developer be interested in pursuing this avenue (which of course would be subject to the buyer obtaining relevant planning permission,) making this suitable for families and developers alike. Internal inspection is strictly by appointment only via Smart Move, so book your viewing now before the opportunity passes you by.
The farmhouse we believe dates back to around the 1850's and whilst it does require some updating, it has amazing potential and could easily be modernised either in its current layout, or by extending the accommodation (subject to PP,) making it suitable for several families needs. In brief the layout of the farmhouse includes: entrance hallway with staircase to the first floor, lounge, dining room, kitchen, sitting room, first floor landing, three double bedrooms and the four piece first floor family bathroom. NB: The attached brick outbuildings to the rear of the farmhouse do present with signs of needing structural attention and were not measured internally, as such, the floor plan is only for reference to indicate their general total size in relation to the house.
The bungalow was built in the 1970's, is completely independent from the main farmhouse and has its own heating, utility supplies and council tax band. The layout of the bungalow includes: front porch which leads to the central hallway, lounge, kitchen, conservatory, bedroom with fitted wardrobes and the three piece shower room completes the accommodation.
The properties occupy a large mature plot of around 0.4 acres in total, which largely consists of well stocked established gardens, both to the front and rear. To the front is an open lawned garden which spans across in front of each property with a mature hedged front boundary. Off road parking is available on the driveway to the left-hand side of the farmhouse, which leads round to the rear and can accommodate a number of vehicles. There is also a large timber shed to the rear, which has potential to be re-built into a garage (subject to PP,) as well as a further timber garden shed to the rear of the bungalow. The majority of the land is to the rear and is currently open plan, with the bungalows lawned rear garden flowing into the farmhouses garden, which offers a further sprawling lawned expanse with numerous plants, trees and shrubs bordering. The rear gardens face a sunny southerly direction and do also offer potential for development (subject to relevant consents / planning permission,) should a developer be interested in looking into this option.
