Primrose Bank Barn dates back to the early 1900s and was sympathetically and successfully converted into a fine, family home in 1985. Extended in recent years and remodelled for modern day living, Primrose Bank Barn sits in a quiet community on the fringes of the A6 and offers a characterful and comfortable living space across three floors. Fine views across the open countryside can be enjoyed from the front of the site whilst to the rear, the property is complemented by a sloping hillside garden, home to a host of visiting wildlife. The property benefits from ample off road parking and a triple stable block. In addition to the current, desirable package, there is an option to purchase 5 acres of adjacent, mature woodland at £45,000.
PLEASE NOTE, THE WOODLAND IS NOT AVAILABLE AS A SEPARATE LOT UNLESS A SALE IS AGREED ON PRIMROSE BANK BARN.
