On entering the property you discover a useful porch, before being greeted by the cosy and inviting living room. The living room, which is in the oldest part of the building, is a great size and a log burning stove and original beams lend the room character.
A door from the living room leads into the large and bright kitchen/ diner, which has plenty of space to accommodate a large dining table and copious amounts of cupboard and counter-top space.

From the garden there are expansive, un-spoilt views across farmland.
The current owner has built a studio at the rear of the garden, with a veranda from which the spectacular views can be enjoyed. The music studio is fully insulated, sound proofed and has mains electricity. It would make a brilliant garden room, home office or studio space for a musician or artist.
