A traditional stone barn conversion enjoying six bedrooms and six bathrooms, offering ideal family accommodation.
The property is approached over a long driveway from the lane from Broad Oak to Welsh Newton passing by your front paddock and orchard on the way down to Meadow Barn. The rear garden is also beautifully landscaped offering ideal space for children and families to enjoy the Spring and Summer sunshine with one part of the garden providing a variety of specimen trees including tulip and mountain ash in an arboretum.

There is space for the erection of garaging if so required (subject to any necessary planning consent). There is access to the rear garden which is a delightful, stunning feature having many years of dedicated work to provide the current garden area. There is a large patio leading directly off the rear of the open plan Living/Dining area and to the side there is a beautiful shubbery and arboretum with a selection of botanical trees including tulip.
