Smart 6 bedroom detached farmhouse with indoor pool and leisure complex surrounded by gardens and paddocks and tucked away down a long drive to ensure privacy.
The property benefits from 2 new regulation all water septic tanks, double glazed windows with wooden shutters.  It was re-wired 4 years ago and has electric heating. The current owners have ensured that the renovation works on the property have been carried out to a high standard whilst retaining the character of the farmhouse. The leisure area has been well designed and includes an indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi, snooker room, shower and toilet. The property has been successfully run as a holiday rental.
