This fine individual detached former farmstead stands in open countryside to the south of the picturesque village of Little Houghton and is offered together with a domestic garden and grass paddock extending in total to an excess of 5 acres. The farmhouse offers four bedroomed accommodation with three reception rooms and kitchen/breakfast room and enjoys spectacular countryside views over rolling pasture to the south and externally there are outbuildings including a detached double garage, a single hovel garage and a kennel. The property has scope for modernisation in part and may also be suitable for extension to create a much larger dwelling subject to planning permission.
Entrance porch, reception hall, lounge, kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room, side hall/wc, utility room and office.
Master bedroom with bathroom ensuite, bedroom two, bedroom three, bedroom four and bathroom.
The house is approached through a cattle grid standing within a post and rail fence and this gives direct access to the double garage with a driveway continuing on to a large tarmac off road parking and turning area adjacent to which there is a further hovel garage and timber kennel.
Located to the east and south east of the house and access directly from the driveway there is a level grass paddock bounded by post and rail fencing and established Hawthorn hedging.
The original house is believed to date from the year 1938 and was extended in the 1940's. The property was further extended in the 1980's and benefits from replacement PVCu double glazing. The property has never before been available to purchase on the open market.
The property is approached via a metalled surface access road through a gateway on the A428 Bedford Road. This driveway serves New Lodge Farm and the principal farm buildings nearby. The purchaser will be granted a right of way for vehicular access which will be subject to a contribution to future maintenance.
Interested parties are requested to make their own enquiries to the relevant authorities as to the availability of services.
