Viewing of this superb property is strongly recommended
A rare opportunity to acquire an appealing Grade 2 listed barn and separate cottage.
Bennacott Barn and Daisy's cottage are approached from the main road via a recently laid stone and gravel drive which has a post and rail style wired fence to each side. Both sides of the drive have their own paddock. To the side of the property is a concreted parking area for multiple vehicles. Passing the substantial Bennacott Barn to the left, 'Daisy's' cottage enjoys its' own approach further on and to the far right.
The barn has been sympathetically converted and retains many of its original features. The current owners have further enhanced the property adding stylish touches throughout. Internally, the property is a lovely, comfortable modern home, boasting an abundance of features including original brickwork, exposed floorboards, a handmade wooden staircase, traditional slate sills, 'A' framed beams and wooden sealed unit double glazed windows. The internal accommodation is over three levels and would suit family living very well, with 4 bedrooms, two of which enjoy en suite facilities. The property also benefits from that all important superfast fibre optic broadband.
Formerly a wagon shed, Daisy cottage was converted in 2014 to the same high standard as the main house. The cottage currently provides additional income as a holiday rental but could equally be used as a granny annex for multi-generational living. Daisy Cottage has its own dedicated parking and a large enclosed courtyard to the front with a good sized shed to the side.
The extensive grounds face due south, affording breath taking views of the surrounding countryside and extend to approximately 2 acres, with a good mix of garden, patio and paddock. There are currently 3 fenced paddocks with a fourth easily achievable from an area requiring clearing. The current owners keep an array of livestock including chickens, sheep and pigs. It would also be possible to keep a pony on the land if desired. This really is an appealing and flexible property which could be enjoyed as is, but also has scope to carry out further landscaping in order to mould to your exact requirements.
There is lapsed planning permission (2013) to erect a contemporary 4 bedroom house in the grounds.
Both Bennacott Barn and Daisy's cottage are Grade 2 listed.
Planning permission was granted on 5th October 2012 under application number PA11/06489 and listed building consent application number PA11/07227.
