DESCRIPTION Two bedroom stone built detached house situated in an idyllic rural setting with stunning panoramic countryside views. This property offers huge potential and benefits from planning permission for an extension to the rear.
The accommodation is full of character and charm with beamed ceilings and deep window sills. The entrance porch leads into the spacious dining room with restored range and cast iron spiral staircase leading to the first floor. The kitchen can be accessed from the dining room and is fitted with a range of wall and base units with a door into the utility room. The utility room is plumbed for a washing machine and provides a useful space for storage. The living room enjoys a feature fireplace housing an open fire with access into the conservatory. The conservatory enjoys stunning elevated views over open countryside. The shower room is situated on the ground floor and is fitted with a WC, wash hand basin set in a vanity unit and a shower cubicle. There is also a useful airing cupboard.
On the first floor the landing area leads to two double bedrooms both with dormer style windows. The master bedroom benefits from a dressing room which includes fitted wardrobes to both sides along with a further storage room.
The lower ground floor is accessed externally, there is a store room under the conservatory and further accommodation under the main house split into three rooms currently used for storage.
Externally there are approximately 2 acres of rough grazing land to the rear of the property including a small area of woodland and a small stone outbuilding. There is parking for two cars to the front and side of the property.
DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL This property offers potential for further development. The current owner has obtained planning permission for the demolition of an existing extension to the rear, replaced by a new split single and two storey extension to the rear of the property, internal alterations and improvements, enlargement of front porch, addition of a new detached garage and removal of the greenhouse and shed.
In addition planning permission has also been obtained for the erection of a new small agricultural building for storage.
