Ryelands is a fine traditional farmhouse built on 2 storeys of stone under a pitched slate roof which has been extended and comprehensively renovated and modernised to form a superb rural family house. It has spacious flexible accommodation making the most of its southerly aspect with pleasing countryside views.
Although Ryelands adjoins another house developed from the original farm outbuildings, the careful division has ensured complete privacy for both properties. A substantial garage and separate workshop/store which could be utilised for stables are complemented by attractive gardens and a small field.
From the gravelled courtyard with ample parking area, the front door with porch leads to a panelled hall. To the left the cosy dining room with hardwood flooring opens to the well proportioned main lounge with wood burning stove. Off the hall is the downstairs bedroom with family bathroom next door with bath and double shower. The sitting room is a key feature of the house with French doors and windows on three sides affording the room considerable natural light and views over the courtyard and garden. From this room a glass and timber staircase provides access to a useful gallery area and 2 of the bedrooms.
The kitchen is a large square room with extensive wall and floor units, electric hob, oven, dishwasher. The utility room houses the boiler, washing machine and further sink.
From the hall, the main staircase leads to 2 of the bedrooms and shower room. The master bedroom is a delightful double aspect room with elegant plasterwork. The shower room is also well appointed with shower, w.c. and wash hand basin.
The house is fully double glazed and well insulated. There is an oil fired central heating boiler complemented by an 18 kW air source heat pump. In the garden there are 4kw of solar panels providing electricity and feed-in-tariff income.
To the front of the house is a charming gravelled courtyard overlooking the large garden. There is a substantial stone garage and new workshop/store across the drive within the mature shelterbelt which forms part of the property. To the north of the house is a gravelled access to a small enclosed field and carport. In all the grounds extend to about 1.23 acres.
