A delightful, traditional farmhouse and converted steading located in a wonderful, elevated position and enjoys panoramic views over Glass and the surrounding countryside. Constructed from stone with harled gables under a slate roof and having been sympathetically extended in recent years, the house provides very well appointed and flexible accommodation over two storeys. On the ground floor, a rear hall with built-in wardrobes gives access to a WC/cloakroom and a store/boot room. A passage leads to a dining-room with a wood burning stove. Off the dining-room is a well equipped kitchen with various integrated appliances and wonderful southerly views. Opposite the kitchen is a useful utility room/laundry whilst there is also a generously sized bathroom. From the main hall, doors lead to a living-room, also with a wood burning stove, and opposite this a charming sitting-room which is currently used as a home office, also with woodburner. A sun room on the south elevation of the house is a magnificent room from which to enjoy the stunning views and which also has a glazed door to the garden. On the first floor, there are three bedrooms and a WC.
The house appears to be in excellent condition and is very tastefully decorated throughout. Barefolds has all of the features one would hope to find in a property of this age and character including fireplaces with wood burning stoves and excellent built in storage space. The sitting-room, sun room, living and dining-room are particularly appealing rooms and with large double glazed windows, the house has a very light and airy atmosphere. The property is well insulated and heated using a 30kW biomass boiler (positioned in the steading opposite) with part of the ground floor benefiting from underfloor heating. The rest of the house is heated with radiators.
Located adjacent is a traditional C shaped steading, part of which has been converted into additional accommodation. Along with the original byre and a general store/workshop, both of which offer excellent storage and work space, the steading includes an open-plan kitchen/dining/living-room, a sitting-room with a wood burning stove and tall ceilings, an impressive study/bedroom and a WC/shower room. The first floor accommodation includes a landing/seating area as well as an additional bedroom. The Steading is also centrally heated using the biomass boiler whilst hot water is heated either by electricity or from a back boiler on a wood burning stove in the kitchen/living-room. The Steading is currently used as additional guest accommodation to the main house, however, it has considerable scope for use as holiday accommodation offering up the potential to generate a useful additional income, or for inter-generational living.
GARDEN AND GROUNDS
Surrounding the house is a beautifully maintained garden with areas of lawn, well stocked borders, soft fruit bushes and trees, a gravelled parking area and various log stores. A delightful copse of broadleaved woodland provides shelter to the west whilst an excellent paddock to the front of the house provides grazing for horses or other livestock.
