Full Details

ABOUT LANE FARM Lane Farm is believed to originally be 2 farm cottages dating back to circa 1820, but has been a single dwelling for quite some time. Our clients purchased the property in 2003 and have carried out comprehensive works to improve and extend the property since then.

A two storey extension was added to the side circa 2005 followed by a single storey extension to the rear. This has created a flexible and comfortable home which combines the traditional integrity of the original property with the convenience of modern fittings.

On the ground floor there is an entrance porch, large lounge with stone fireplace and multi fuel stove, dining room, quality fitted kitchen with open plan breakfast room, sitting / play room, oak framed garden room, utility and downstairs wc. Upstairs there is a landing, house bathroom, 4 double bedrooms and a single bedroom / office. The two main bedrooms each have en-suite bathrooms.

The property is beautifully presented throughout with all of the bathrooms and kitchen having been replaced during our client's ownership. The windows have also been replaced with uPVC double glazing throughout (except to the oak framed garden room) and there is an oil fired central heating system which is run from the Redfyre range in the Kitchen. It is connected to mains water and electricity and drainage is to a septic tank which is shared with the adjacent property.

Externally there is driveway to the side of the house which leads to the attached double garage. The rear garden has been attractively landscaped and adjoins open fields.
