The property consists of a small detached house with room to extend the accommodation to the side or rear elevations, subject to planning.  It is in a quiet rural hamlet and stands in the middle of its plot.  At the moment the property requires some TLC so the photos attached of the outside are some “before” and some “now”. There is potential to create an en-suite guest room in the attached workshop as there is already a shower room.  Viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the scope and situation of this property.
