Description

The properties have great garden spaces which are predominantly South facing, space to create parking and both have attractive external features.

The properties are available to purchase individually or together as a pair.

Outside To the front of the property is a wall enclosed garden and an area to the side of the property which, (subject to Planning) could potentially be used for parking. A path leads around the side of the house to the rear garden which has a couple of mature trees, is enclosed by a post and rail fence and has an outlook onto the neighbouring field.

THE BARN FOR CONVERSION The barn is a very attractive structure, built predominantly of local stone with a vaulted roof structure and large exposed timbers. Planning Permission has been granted for conversion of the barn into an attractive two or three bedroom property with large living spaces and has plenty of glazed walls looking onto its own garden. The property has the potential to become a very special home.

The current barn structure is approximately 21m x 7m. The plans show the barn converted with a new addition coming off the barn creating a T-shape into the garden.

The property sides onto Maer Lane and borders the adjoining cottage. To the rear is a very good sized enclosed garden with a couple of mature trees, space ton create parking and is enclosed by a post and rail fence.
