Why You'll Like It
A superb opportunity to live in a stylish farmhouse with letting units that have provided a healthy income but which could be used in many ways including working from home, studios or games rooms. The property has been thoughtfully restored and there are many contemporary touches that integrate well with the character of this beautiful home. The large kitchen/breakfast room has a range of modern units and granite worktops, a double oven and induction hob. French doors from the kitchen open to the deck and the double sided log burner serves both the dining room and the kitchen - a truly superb feature. The dining room has a polished wood floor and the living room has a marble fireplace. Practical matters are taken care of in the rear lobby/utility - an ideal space for laundry and/or pets. There is a WC/cloakroom on the ground floor. Upstairs, there are four double bedrooms (master en-suite) and a large contemporary family bathroom. The recently constructed double garage has an electric roller shutter door and access door to the rear.
Self contained annexe
To the rear of the main farmhouse, there is a self contained one bedroom annexe let on an assured shorthold tenancy yielding in excess of £8000 per annum. The annexe comprises a porch with tiled floor, open plan kitchen/diner with a good range of units with granite worktops. Inner hall, bathroom/WC, living room and a double bedroom.
