ACCOMMODATION
Refer to the floor plan for sizes and shape of the property.
The size of the accommodation is deceptive. There is large hallway with good access to all rooms. The KITCHEN is long very bright and has access to the side garden and views of the paddocks. Recently re-modelled and refurbished along with the breakfasting area and sofa, this is an ideal place to relax and eat. The SITTING ROOM is cosy and has a fireplace currently with a wood burning stove fitted. The DINING ROOM / reception room is currently used as hobbies room but may suit a secondary SITTING ROOM rather than dining room. The end BEDROOM has an EN-SUITE (which was the garage but converted some time ago) may suit being the PRINCIPAL BEDROOM. There are a further 2 BEDROOMS as well as a STUDY which has a door out to the rear garden ( may also be used as a bedroom). The UTILITY room is off the kitchen and has a door to the rear garden (this is currently used as a dog room) but may suit being a further reception.
On the FIRST FLOOR there is the PRINCIPAL BEDROOM with a view to the rear of the property, a further BATHROOM and a secondary room which could be used as a BEDROOM or dressing room. The loft continues so could be incorporated into the existing bedroom space.

Otherwise, an online measuring tool will have been used to 'check' the acreage against the Land Registry Title where possible. Interested applicants / buyers are advised that if they have any doubts as to the plot size and wish to have verification of the titles and exact area of the entire plot/s, they will be required to make their own arrangements, at their own cost, by appointing the services of a Solicitor acting on their behalf and an accredited / qualified company who can measure the area for a compliant Land Registry Title Plan.

AGENTS NOTES

It is the Vendors wish that this gate and a small area of the field , approx. 1/2 acre (*TBV) will remain in their possession and is in the process of being measured and lodged with Land Registry as a new tile.

FOOTPATH/RIGHT OF WAY - There is a public footpath to the North West boundary, top of the furthest feid, which has been panel fenced off. It does not go across the field.
