THE ANNEXE: A self-contained two bedroom conversion, all on one level and benefiting from a good sized living kitchen area, plus two double bedrooms and a shower room. The annexe has central heating and its own patio area to the rear.
There is also a utility room with external access and so can be used by either/both properties.
OUTSIDE: The gardens are largely to the rear and side of the property with a good sized gently sloping lawn bordered with wood chippings, plus an outside seating/dining area immediately behind the house, a chicken run and an area formally used for vegetable plots.
A private lane runs between the properties and gives access to both the large workshop, which has garage door to front and ample space for cars and working in, plus access to the 2 acre field, which is split into two paddocks and which enjoys vehicular access from the country lane too. With the addition of stables, these paddocks would be ideal for horses.
