OFFERS INVITED IN WRITING BY 12 NOON, FRIDAY, 7 JUNE 2019 A rare opportunity to acquire a substantial six/seven double bedroom detached period farmhouse situated in open countryside with panoramic open views, within two thirds of an acre of gardens. Dating back to 1809, the property is Grade II listed and offers a wealth of original features including heavily beamed ceilings, original doors, fireplaces and vaulted cellars. Having been re-roofed and repointed and with replacement windows throughout, the property otherwise generally needs upgrading and modernisation and offers a superb project for those wishing to restore a large period farmhouse to their own taste and specification.
