A detached period farmhouse enjoying outstanding views across the valley. This stone-built farmhouse with gardens includes paddocks extending to approximately 3 acres. The farmhouse has been renovated to offer ample accommodation with character features including flagstone floors and stone fireplaces, and now has the scope for further modernisation. The stone ruins of the property still adjoin the farmhouse with the large stones of the old fireplace in situ, giving scope for further extension. Across the drive is a further barn with scope for renovation.
