Full Details

ABOUT ALMA FARM This outstanding semi-detached property was originally constructed as barn to the adjoining farmhouse circa 1854. It was converted to a house in 1981 and has been home to our clients since 1995. During their occupation, the property has been well maintained with a number of improvements made including the addition of the garden room at the rear and also the construction of the large agricultural building.

The property features a formal front entrance hall with galleried landing over, lounge with log burning stove, dining room which is open plan to the garden room, dining kitchen, utility and a side entrance hall on the ground floor. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms and a family bathroom, the master bedroom has an en-suite shower room.

It has the benefit of uPVC double glazed windows and an oil fired central heating system. It is connected to a mains electricity supply and drainage is to a septic tank (shared with next door). Water is supplied from a borehole and well - this is filtered through the property's own water filtration plant.

A single storey former mistal is attached to the front of the property, this incorporates a store room, double car port and an outside store / workshop. This could offer the scope to convert into an annex, offices or other uses depending upon the buyers needs, subject to planning permission.
