Message From The Seller

The property has been completely stripped and gutted ready for re-design and refurbishment.  External walls are now neatly laid block between the oak framing rather than the old mud/wattle, and the roof was overhauled and renewed some 7 years ago.  Such a peaceful place IMO with the sweetest apples from the trees I’ve ever tasted, plus a nice big chicken house for your eggs and meat.  Country living without being remote.
