Deuglie Croft is currently a stone built double fronted 3 bedroom former farmhouse with an attached steading. The current owners have obtained planning permission (Reference 19/00709/FLL) for the conversion of both to create a highly desirable and impressive house. The current habitable house consists of a sitting room with an open fireplace, breakfasting kitchen and rear store with a stone flagged floor with a door to the garden.
The first floor has three bedrooms, one with an integrated wardrobe and one with a feature fireplace. There is a shower room on the ground and first floor.
The adjoining steading, also stone built with a slate roof consists of a range of stores which would have been traditionally used for housing livestock and agricultural implements. Planning permission has been granted and architect drawings have been prepared for the creation of a superb home incorporating both the farmhouse and steading, utilising the space to the best potential. The proposals involve creating the entertaining and family living space within the old steading where a sitting room, breakfasting kitchen, dining room and office have been created together with a utility and boot room. The proposals include having double doors from the principal reception areas leading onto the garden. Double height ceilings will also be utilised to retain the current beamed features and further adding to the volume, light and space offered. The farmhouse proposals consist of creating a snug and three good sized bedrooms, all with en-suite facilities. The current store with flagged floors in the farmhouse was going to be converted into a treatment room, however, this has potential for other flexible uses such as a fourth bedroom, office or games room and there is a proposed shower room adjacent.

The paddock which consists of about 1 acre of grazing is mostly enclosed with a post and wire fence and is adjacent to the garden. Access can be obtained directly from the property and also the adjacent single track public highway. This offers additional amenity and is perfect for the keeping of a horse, ponies or other livestock.
