LOT 1 – Farmhouse, farm buildings and approx. 81 acres of farmland The farmhouse is a unique and unspoilt find providing the perfect renovation opportunity.

The farmhouse enjoys a separate access to that of the adjacent farm buildings with a private driveway that sweeps around the front lawn. There are 10 bedrooms accommodated over three storeys with ample living space and plenty of scope to create a delightful family home. The property boasts a range of character features including open fireplaces as well as enjoying pleasant views to the front lawn and driveway. The farm building complex is substantial with around 25,000 sq. ft. of modern steel portal framed buildings and 10,000 sq. ft. of traditional buildings.
