The property has been beautifully decorated throughout and is being offered in walk in condition. Brecklate includes 4/5 bedrooms, including a large ground floor bedroom with en-suite, originally the farm stables, with a delightful galleried mezzanine, ideal as a reading space, play area or as additional accommodation. Also on the ground floor is a sitting room/study and further room with wood burning stove, which could also be used as a bedroom. There is also a large utility room and cloakroom. The architect designed open plan kitchen dining living area provides a delightful, practical space to relax and entertain. From here is access to 2 first floor bedrooms and large bathroom. A further first floor bedroom with en-suite is reached via a dedicated staircase from the main hall.

With 2 bedrooms and a sitting room that can be used and accessed independently, the property is ideally suited for use in this way.Adjoining Brecklate to the rear is a substantial former stone byre. The building is now used as a garage, boot room and kennel with the option to create stables in one of the other outbuildings if required.

Solar panels have also been installed which benefit from a feed in tariff of approximately £600/per annum.GARDEN AND GROUNDSAn extensive and very pretty garden extends to the front of the property and includes a large area of lawn sloping down to a delightful orchard. To the rear of the property are two large paddocks. The western paddock immediately behind Brecklate includes a fenced off area with polytunnel and separate area with chicken run. The second paddock lies to the north and is accessed by crossing one of two pretty tree lined burns that run through the grounds where they mark the boundary.OUTBUILDINGSIn addition to the former byre, is an extensive range of outbuildings accessed via the courtyard to the rear of the property which also provides parking for several cars.

There is also an open fronted wood/hay store, separate stone shed with electricity, water and working forge and detached, large games room/stable/store.
