Property Description

PROPERTY Gables Farm offers a rare opportunity to renovate an impressive and substantial Grade II listed farmhouse with extensive outbuildings set in established grounds extending to around 4.5 acres. The property is believed to date back to the 17th Century and requires extensive repair throughout. Viewing is essential to appreciate the full potential of this unique renovation project.

Gables Farm has an abundance of original features, including; exposed timber, mullion windows, doors, raised hearths, inglenook fireplaces, cellar and more. The accommodation briefly comprises a kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, sitting room, study, utility, and a shower room all to the ground level. The kitchen also gives access to a loft room/possible bedroom via a steep staircase. The first floor is complimented by 5 bedrooms (2 interlinked) and 2 family bathrooms. There is a further staircase leading to extensive attic space on the 2nd level, which we believe would be well-suited to conversion (STP). Outside, the property sits within grounds of approximately 4.5 acres. A further 3.5 acres (STMS) may be available by separate negotiation. The extensive outbuildings (approx. 115sq.m) were previously granted planning consent to convert in to a 3 bedroom property (now lapsed). Details upon request.

AGENTS NOTE Please note that the vendor informs us a right of way will be granted to access the rear field by vehicle.
