To the left of the hall a door opens into the farmhouse-style kitchen (33m2) with tiled floor, exposed stone feature wall and a range of fitted units.

Also off the landing is a large family bathroom (bath, walk-in shower and twin wash-basins) as well as a separate WC.
A door to the far side of the kitchen opens to a range of outbuildings which run along one side and along the back of the house - in total about 150m2 - into which it could be possible to extend the habitable accommodation (subject to planning permissions).
There is also another large barn (about 150m2) running down one side of the garden.
The house sits on a plot of 4728m2. To the front of the house a paved terrace leads onto a lawn which is edged with pollarded trees. To one corner is a handsome pigeonnier with slate roof. The pigeonnier comprises two rooms (20m2) over two floors - it would make a wonderful office or studio with stunning country views.
