CHAIN FREE! With fantastic POTENTIAL FOR DEVELOPMENT (which is subject to planning permission), this STONE BUILT DETACHED TWO BEDROOM house, which has a great deal of history along with it. The property was built in the late 1800's and previously served as a school which had a Methodist church attached. This was removed in 1937, leaving a fantastic piece of development land. The land stretches to the top of the bank overlooking the house and has PANORAMIC VIEWS of the countryside. We feel this would be ideal for a sun terrace or patio area, whilst the bottom land would be ideal for an extension or garages etc.

Immediately to the front of the property is a walled garden which is laid to lawn. Whilst to the rear of the property there is a yard area. To the side of the property there is a substantial piece of land with outhouse. This provides car parking for numerous vehicles, it has the potential for the constructions of a large garage, extension or another dwelling subject to the relevant planning permission. Behind the parking area on an elevated site, up a small lane there is an additional piece of land which is fenced.


The property has great potential for extension, whether it be a single storey extension or a double storey extension. In 1973 planning permission was granted for development which has now lapsed but gives an idea of what potentially could be done. The stretch of land to the side, which is to be sold with the property previously sited a Methodist church, which was taken down in 1937.

In length the land is approximately 100 feet and 32 feet in width.
