Also there is existing planning permission for an extension of the kitchen to the front.The property is approached down a gravel lane shared with just two neighbouring properties located behind Lovelake. A five bar gate opens into a large gravelled parking area at the front providing parking space for numerous vehicles and on the left is a detached wooden multi-purpose building with light and power, currently used as a garage but with potential as a summer house, work space, gym etc.At the front is a covered entrance with door opening into an entrance/utility hall fitted with storage units with wooden worktop and an under mounted sink, there is space for a washing machine, tumble dryer and large fridge freezer and access to a room housing the oil fired central heating boiler.The impressive double aspect living dining kitchen is a wonderfully bright and airy space with vaulted ceilings and 'A' frame beams.

The level pasture is divided into two main areas of 2.4 acres and 1.7 acres, in addition to a small fenced area adjacent to the sand school. A gate opens to the area of woodland consisting of a variety of different species, with various paths winding throughout and a grassy area in the middle which is completely secluded when the trees are in leaf.
