*** Charm, character, a large plot, outbuildings with potential to develop/ convert and all in a non estate village location with fields to the rear – This STUNNING cottage really does offer it all***
Pyghtle Farm is believed to date back in part to the 1500’s and you really get a sense of that as you approach the cottage and are immediately struck by the gorgeous timber framework and bespoke timber window frames that have been lovingly restored by the current owners over the last 43 years, along with much of the hand crafted interior and the oak framed conservatory!! The only way to really appreciate just how much character this delightful cottage has to offer is to see it first hand and then you can enjoy the individual elements that have been incorporated into the restoration over the years. The Grade Two listed cottage sits on a plot of around a third of an acre and provides a sweeping driveway along the side of the property and leads to an extensive courtyard area and a large range of brick and timber built outbuildings, some of which could be ideal for development or conversion into guest accommodation (subject to relevant consents). Don’t just take our word for it though, come and see for yourself!!
