The garage area also has its own electricity supply and consumer board. This garage includes a garage door suitable for larger family vehicles and also includes its own separate side door.
The garage space has potential for use as a garage/workshop or conversion to a home gymnasium. This garage / studio unit has a traditional apex roof which offers the possibility of additional storage in the roof space.
The iron gated driveway to the property has parking for several vehicles. There is also access to the garage block from Field Lane, separate from the main driveway and with additional off-road parking for another two vehicles. A secondary site access to the property further north on Field Lane provides access for larger farm vehicles and additional parking space. The wide secondary site entrance also provides direct access to the 7.54 acre plot and would be suitable for delivery of building materials, skips etc.
The property is also surrounded by mature and well maintained gardens, Loral hedges, a patio, well stocked borders, a large grassed area and an established orchard with both apple and pear trees. There is also a fenced-off section of land next to the orchard previously used as a vegetable patch which includes a greenhouse.
To the north of the site are a range of former agricultural storage buildings, along with access to an additional piece of former paddock land.
The former barn structure (external measurement: 26’ x 40’ approx.) has 3 even sized compartments with a running water supply located next to the barn. The former barn has potential for use as horse stables or possibly a barn conversion subject to the relevant planning permissions. An electrical distribution transformer mounted on a pole is also located next to the barn which could provide an electricity supply for any future redevelopment work.
Located next to the barn structure is a late 1800s detached cottage (external measurement: 13’ x 36’ approx.) which may be suitable for restoration or redevelopment.
Also located in the barn area are various plots of hard standing concrete (former piggery) which could be used for additional off-road parking or redevelopment subject to the relevant permissions being obtained.
