The house is set back from the lane and will have level gardens to the front.

with concrete portal lean to, fully clad.
• Former poultry building (20.5 x 8.67m)

The Land

The land is mainly sloping with some level areas near the Roncombe Stream and some steeper hills forming the western boundary. Good tracks provide access to the majority of the fields. The land has been used for poultry, sheep and cattle by the vendors. There are areas of mixed broadleaved woodland with watercourses running through. In total the woodland extends to just over 4 acres.
