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.
