In front of the main house you wíll find a large pebbled forecourt divided into two distinct areas of which one is used as a sitting out area and has a view over the mature gardens which feature lawns, flowering plants, trees and bushes. The other, which extends to a cluster of three outbuildings, provides abundant car parking space. Close to the gardens youíll find an orchard which includes apple, hazelnut and plum trees. The cluster of three outbuildings comprises: - a large hangar constructed in corrugated metal on a wood frame which has previously been used to accommodate animals. The floor is part concrete, part compressed earth. - a former cow barn constructed in stone with a corrugated metal roof, which could be used for horses or other animals. It has a concrete floor and is boarded out above the ceiling beams to provide additional loft storage space. - a further hangar constructed in corrugated metal on a wooden frame, providing a further storage space and can serve as a garage. Behind the cluster of three outbuildings is the small field enclosed within fencing and hedgerows. The whole property extends to about 1.13 ha (about 2.8 acres). A further stone-built outbuilding is set back a little from the forecourt area and has a small lawn with flowering bushes just in front of it as well as an original well. This building is believed to an old bread oven and has floor space of around 25m2 with a further boarded out area above the ceiling beams, ideal for storing garden equipment etc. A final stone-built outbuilding sits to the left of the house adjacent to the sitting out area, is divided into three separate sections and has a concrete floor and an electricity supply to the two principal units.
