EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM
OUTSIDE To the western side of the barn is an expansive stoned parking area with a path running along the front of the barn. A delightful feature of the property is that on the site of the former canal, a very small stream now trickles along and goes by the northern side of the barn with its most impressive original stone columns, with expansive paved patio accessed by covered "non-slip" steps with downlighters above. In years long gone by it was along this very side of the original barn that small barges stopped and unloaded their sand.
THE LAND This extends to about 5 acres and includes 3 paddocks, and 1 large field. It is level or very gently sloping with well maintained hedges that have been cleared and stocked fenced with new posts, and 2 strands of wire. This is complemented by new gates throughout. Perfect for stock or equestrian use. Dividing the paddocks/field, the basin of the original canal has now grown into a well wooded strip with native trees including hazel, willow, ash, and hawthorne. It is a naturally rich habitat, and on the day these details were prepared roe deer were seen in this cover. At the eastern end of the land is a most picturesque strip known as "Sandy Lane" which provides a most amazing spot just to go for a ramble/walk, with oak topped hedge, and which continues and links upto a country road.
SERVICES Mains water and electricity. Private drainage to a new "Klargester" unit.
