DESCRIPTION

Lower Blagdon Farm is an exciting renovation project. The house was originally a very small barn, which has been extended over the years but would now benefit from general modernisation or replacement, subject to planning consent. The house is positioned on a good-sized plot with gardens to the front and rear to include a range of outbuildings and a paddock that in whole extends to approximately 6.76 acres.

ACCOMMODATION

The accommodation is arranged over two floors. There is a pitch tiled entrance porch leading to a front door, which in turn opens into the entrance hallway, where there is a downstairs cloakroom. The lounge, which centres upon an open fireplace with stone surround, has a beamed ceiling and two front aspect windows and a door that provides access to the storage cupboard. There is a separate dining room with a window overlooking the rear and a door providing access to a turning staircase to the first floor. The kitchen / breakfast room is fitted with a range of matching wall and base units, roll edge work surfaces with an electric hob, a single drainer sink unit with a double drainer, a built-in oven, plumbing and space for an automatic washing machine, space for a fridge, a door to the utility room and a door to the rear and access to the dining room. On the first floor there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom suite.

OUTSIDE

There is a private driveway, which leads down past the house with stone walling on either side. The front garden is surrounded by deep planted herbaceous borders and on the opposite side of the drive there is a pedestrian gate leading to a further area of garden with deep herbaceous borders, a green house and a detached stone outbuilding, which has been divided into two stores. Opposite is a garage with double opening doors, a workshop and attached door. The driveway extends to the bottom of the garden, where there is a turning area, a level area of lawn, planted borders, a number of specimen trees and a gateway providing access to the paddock. The paddock is laid to pasture with mains water and has a lovely outlook towards the recreational ground with fields beyond.
