ABOUT SLACKS FARM This wonderfully located traditional detached farmhouse and barn conversion enjoys a stunning elevated rural location with far reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

The property comprises a traditional stone built cottage which has been extended into the converted barn at the rear. Renovation works to this building were carried out by our clients circa 2004. Since then the property has undergone more recent modernisation works to ensure that the many traditional features are complimented by quality contemporary fixtures and fittings.

The property is entered through a spacious entrance hall which has a utility room to the side. There is also an impressive dining kitchen with large island unit and cosy sitting room with flagged floor and log burning stove in the original house. A door from the kitchen leads into the former barn which forms a fantastic living room with amazing views to each elevation, most notably through the arched barn window. There is also a second entrance hall providing access to the garden and 2 further rooms currently used as a sitting room and home office.

On the upper floor there is a galleried landing area over the lounge leading to the master bedroom which has its own en-suite bathroom, 4 further double bedrooms, bathroom and shower room. All three bathrooms have recently been refitted to an excellent modern standard.
