The kitchen
The spacious kitchen awaits an update, but offers the new owners a blank canvas to create their dream country kitchen for family time and informal entertaining.

Tucked into a recess, an AGA embodies countryside living, whilst the remaining space could easily accommodate wall and floor mounted units, a central island and a large kitchen table and chairs.

Next to the kitchen, a practical utility room/pantry offers extra storage space for food and household appliances, whilst also providing easy convenient to the downstairs WC.

The dining room
Ideal for formal entertaining, the dining room offers ample space for a large table and chairs and a built-in corner cupboard provides useful storage. A stone inglenook fireplace commands attention as the focal point of the room, whilst a large rear-facing window bathes the room in natural light.

The living room
Well proportioned and generously sized, the living room features high ceilings with original cornicing and a charming ceiling rose. An open fireplace, complete with a detailed surround offers cosy warmth, whilst a large bay window ensures the room is flooded with ample natural light.

The study
The large study features a glazed door that leads out in to the garden and ensures the room is a bright and airy space to work. The room also features the same high ceilings found throughout the ground floor of this property.

First floor bedrooms
A large spacious landing leads to the bedrooms and bathroom facilities on this first floor and features an additional staircase that ascends to the bedroom and bathroom on the second floor.

Each of the five bright and airy bedrooms on this floor feature high ceilings and ornate fireplaces. Large sash windows in each of the rooms frame views of the picturesque countryside that surrounds the property.

The family bathroom
The generously sized first floor family bathroom offers the new owners a great opportunity to create their ultimate bathroom.

Additionally, serving the bedrooms on this level is a shower room, complete with a WC, washbasin, and shower cubicle.

The second floor bathroom
This stylish and well appointed contemporary bathroom comprises part of the large second floor bedroom suite which also includes a dressing room.

The garden
This south west facing garden presents an opportunity to design and layout the garden of your dreams. The presence of mature trees and shrubs along with an original water feature offers an established base for landscaping and creative development. Such immediate maturity would perfectly complement the elegance of this significant property.

The cottages
The two fully modernised cottages offer very comfortable and functional accommodation. They currently provide an income as residential lets but could easily be re-imagined to either serve as holiday rental accommodation or as secondary accommodation whilst renovation work to the main house is completed.

The Stable Cottage
The larger of the two, this one bedroom, single story, cottage consists of a modern well equipped kitchen and a large sitting room with French doors that open outside on to a patio area.

The bedroom is a generously sized double with a walk in wardrobe and a well appointed ensuite shower room.

The Barn Cottage
The ground floor of Barn Cottage features an open plan, well equipped, living/kitchen area with a useful separate boot room. The bedroom is situated on the first floor, along with a bathroom, and will comfortably accommodate a double bed with space remaining for a chest of draws and a small wardrobe.

The barns and outbuildings
The range of modern and traditional barns offer either opportunity for the development of a recreational equestrian facility, for running an agricultural small holding or for potential redevelopment into residential properties subject to planning consents. A large concrete parking area and six bay carport provides parking for visitors and cottage tenants alike.

The pastures
The twenty acres are made up of several fields that sit to the east, north and south. The fields to the north and the east are conveniently accessed from the rear of the farmyard and barns and are connected to the mains water supply.

The fields to the south are accessed by crossing the lane at the end of the drive, and feature over 600 meters of beautiful river frontage on the River Lugg.

The River Lugg and the Lower Lugg Meadows
Accompanying the twenty acres of pastures of the home farm are seasonal grazing rights to over the 330-acre Upper and Lower Lugg Meadows for both cattle and sheep.

Dating back to the time before the Domesday Book, Lugg Meadow is one of the most important surviving Lammas Meadows (common meadows opened for communal grazing on Lammas Day, the 1st August).

The fishing rights on the River Lugg
Owning the fishing rights to 600 meters of the River Lugg is an exclusive privilege, whether it’s fly fishing for trout or angling for coarse fish, every excursion promises moments of relaxation and excitement amidst the picturesque scenery of the River Lugg.

On the days without a rod, the river’s gentle flow offers a sanctuary and a deep connection with nature that provides the perfect escape from the bustle of everyday life.

Mains electricity & water, private drainage, oil central heating & super fast fibre broadband.

Administration Fee - refundable on exchange

An administration fee, refundable on exchange, is payable prior to the issue of the Memorandum of Sale and after which the property may be marked as Sold Subject to Contract. The fee will be reimbursed upon the successful Exchange of Contracts.

The fee will be retained by Andrew Grant in the event that you the buyer withdraws from the purchase or does not Exchange within 6 months of the fee being received other than for one or more of the following reasons:

1. Any significant material issues highlighted in a survey that were not evident or drawn to the attention of you the buyer prior to the Memorandum of Sale being issued.
2. Serious and material defect in the seller’s legal title.
3. Local search revealing a matter that has a material adverse effect on the market value of the property that was previously undeclared and not in the public domain.
4. The vendor withdrawing the property from sale.

The administration fee levels are as follows:
an agreed offer under £500,000 will be £750 inclusive of vat
an agreed offer between £500,000 and £1,000,000 will be £2,000 inclusive of vat
all agreed offers over £1,000,000 will be £3,000 inclusive of vat

The administration fee is payable upon acceptance by the vendor of an offer from a buyer and a positive completion of an assessment of the buyer’s financial status and ability to proceed.
Should a buyer’s financial position regarding the funding of the property prove to be fundamentally different from that declared by the buyer when the Memorandum of Sale was completed, then the Vendor has the right to withdraw from the sale and the administration fee retained. For example, where the buyer declares themselves as a cash buyer but are in fact relying on an unsecured sale of their property.

Once the administration fee has been paid, any renegotiation of the price stated in the memorandum of sale for any reason other than those covered in points 1 to 3 above will lead to the reservation fee being retained. A further fee will be levied on any subsequent reduced offer that is accepted by the vendor. This further fee will be subject to the same conditions that prevail for all administration fees outlined above.
