The property provides for spacious family accommodation throughout and it should be noted that the property has undergone a number of improvements in recent years to include re-skimming of ceilings, installation of new wetroom, and installation of a new central heating system.

The farmhouse benefits from a private area of lawn to the north which is interspersed by several areas of mature shrubs and bushes, and enclosed by an area of mature trees which provide visual shelter to the property. There is also a small greenhouse within the garden area.
