Message From The Seller

The renovated part of the house is habitable and can be lived in comfortably whilst further renovations and/or extension are carried out.  It is in the middle of the countryside, perfect for those who love peace and quiet and nature but it is still close to a lovely Town.  There is a nice entrance with plenty of parking, land all around the house and room to have animals or create a swimming pool.
