Dating from 1780, Higher Stone Head Farm offers a growing family the opportunity to acquire a charming four bedroom family home – beautifully appointed throughout.

Adjoining the house is a superb two-storey barn with five stables and a substantial first floor area above, which is ripe for conversion subject to the necessary consents.

Sitting in an idyllic rural location, nestled below a mature woodland area giving protection from the elements and forming a beautiful backdrop to the approach, the gardens are beautifully tended, and include lawns, vegetable/fruit patch and chicken run.

As well as ample parking facilities for a number of cars there is a further 16 acres of enclosed grassland with a stream – ideal for livestock.

Once over the threshold, this listed home’s quality will become all too apparent.

Mullioned windows, exposed timber and stone work are to be found throughout the property and there is a delightful kitchen and period bathroom furniture, offering an attractive blend of traditional decor and modern services.

On the ground floor is a living room, sitting room, farmhouse dining kitchen, garden room, utility and study. On the first floor are four bedrooms – the master bedroom having an en-suite bathroom, and the family bathroom.

There’s character in every room – heavy oak beams and panelled walls in the living room together with a restored cast iron Yorkshire range. French windows open into the garden, and both the en-suite and family bathroom have a period cast- iron bath.

As the rear of the house a flagged path passes the garden room and the rear portion of the barn which has stone stairs leading to the former hayloft on the first floor.

Next to the barn is a gravelled parking arch and an arch leading to a hidden vegetable garden and a timber-framed greenhouse, and a path to the chicken run and the small pond.

The sixteen acres of grassland is well drained and enclosed by walls with a stream.

The house, which until 1922 formed part of the Carr Head estate, has been re-roofed by the current owners, and together with mains electricity and oil-fired heating has a private water and drainage supply as well as broadband and double glazing.
