Pickylaw is a very desirable farmstead located in a wonderful position on the outskirts of Hopeman. Likely to date from the mid to late 1800s, the house and steading buildings are constructed of attractive local sandstone and together with about 5 acres of grazing land, make for a very appealing package. The farmhouse provides spacious and well laid out accommodation over two storeys and which extends to about 154m2. On the ground floor, a part glazed door leads to a bright and airy hallway. A door to the right opens to a wonderful sitting room with French doors to the garden and a wood burning stove. From a corner of the room, stairs lead to the first floor where there is a privately situated bedroom, shower room and a large storage cupboard. From the hallway, further doors lead to study/ 3rd bedroom and on to a passage which leads to two further bedrooms and a shower room. There is a dining room with French doors to the garden and which leads directly to a delightful dual aspect breakfasting kitchen with an electric Everhot cooker and a range of wall and floor mounted units. A door from the kitchen leads to the rear hall and a well equipped utility room.
The house has a lovely bright and airy atmosphere with large windows and French doors flooding the interior with natural light. The hall, sitting room, dining room and kitchen are particularly appealing rooms. The house appears to be in good condition and for a traditionally built dwelling will be particularly energy efficient with a 4kW solar panel system and a 25kW bio mass boiler which fuels the central heating and generates a very useful annual income. There is a well maintained garden to the side and rear of the house with a patio, lawns and a productive apple tree.
