The farmhouse is of traditional construction, built of stone external walls, the front and rear elevations are painted white externally and the gable end is cement rendered. The roof is clad with slates and incorporates a single chimneystack. A later single storey rear extension is built of concrete block cavity walls which are rendered and white painted externally and the roof is flat with a mineral felt surface covering. The farmhouse in parts requires refurbishment and will be of particular interest to those purchasers looking for a spacious family home which they can alter and improve to their own satisfaction and specifications, subject to any appropriate planning permission etc.
