  • Bedrooms: 5

The Paddock is currently presented as a predominantly single storey 5-bedroom property but offers a high degree of flexibility. There is an option to re-instate the previous layout to create a self-contained two-bedroom annexe with separate access. In addition, the property benefits from three fabulous, versatile barns/outbuildings situated to the front of the house, all offering scope to develop subject to the necessary consents. One of the barns has recently lapsed planning consent to extend and convert into a two-bedroom cottage.

This versatile property has its accommodation arranged predominantly on one level with the ground floor providing a welcoming entrance hall leading to a lovely farmhouse style kitchen/breakfast room to the rear of the house. This bright, spacious room has sliding patio doors opening onto the rear terrace and garden beyond and has an adjoining utility room. To the front of the property there is a good-sized sitting room with focal multi fuel burner. In addition, there is a second well-proportioned reception room, 4 double bedrooms, a family bathroom and a second shower room. The fifth first floor bedroom is accessed via a spiral staircase and has limited head height.


The property is approached via a private driveway leading from the road which opens into a lovely courtyard to the front of the house. The courtyard is flanked by a large timber barn with stable, a further open barn currently used as a four-bay carport and a third 2 storey stone-built outbuilding that had lapsed planning for conversion into a two bedroomed cottage. There is an attached carport to the side of the outbuilding. To the rear of the house is a private enclosed garden which is predominantly laid to lawn and benefits from a paved terrace area ideal for entertaining.
