Property Description

Summary
A couple of large (200sq m of floorspace) stone buildings on a beautiful site, set in a landscape of fields and trees , the swimming lake less than 5 minutes walk away with a man made beach , summertime life guard and cafe, musical and sporting events. The property has the potential to be whatever your imagination can create.
A wonderful opportunity for anyone with imagination, flair, and perseverance, and probably also helpful to be a dreamer, an optimist and slightly crazy. We have owned this property for two decades and while we failed to achieve our plans (largely due to our son and partner emigrating to OZ,) we have enjoyed the time and labour here, some disasters , a few triumphs, now reaching a point in life where we will be exhausted long before the potential of this site is. Yours to finish and enjoy.
