A fantastic opportunity to create a Four Bed characterful and private residential barn conversion having the benefit of secluded courtyard and fantastic views across open countryside. Up to three acres of paddocks are available by separate negotiation at circa £60,000
The attractive barns, constructed predominantly of local Ironstone under a pantile roof, provide an opportunity to create four bedroom family homes which are part of a working farm dating back in parts to the sixteenth century.

The yard paddocks and arable land surrounding the property are offered for sale by separate negotiation and create an unrivalled setting giving views across open countryside. Planning Consent Obtained
