Outside there are original outbuildings consisting of a large stone built storage shed and open fronted storage for logs. The land is mostly grassed with a walnut grove of about 20 mainly mature trees, a fig tree and a plum tree. There is a 10 by 5 metre newly lined swimming pool with Roman steps, large paved deck areas surrounded bylaurel bushes, a secure fence, bamboo plants and mature trees.

Attached to the house is a large outdoor dining space 10 by 5 metres approx. covered with a wooden pergola and grapevines. There is a built in barbeque, lighting, power and water. This structure which is built on a reinforced concrete raft foundation could be converted into a triple garage, stables,or additional living space subject to planning permission.

A paddock area to one side is a potential plot for one detached house subject to planning permission and is adjacent to the pool and the private drive serving the farmhouse.

We have successfully fully let the housefor several years in the Summer holiday season. We have also run painting holidays there. The house could be easily split into one 4/5 bedroom house or gite and one 2 bedroom gite by converting the existing utility room into a small kitchen.

The house is on the market fully furnished and equipped and therefore ready for immediate occupation.

We would consider exchanging the property for one of similar value in Yorkshire or Derbyshire or certain other regions in the UK.
