Full Description

Looking for a Lifestyle change? Rural location? Work from home?

Ever fancied the idea of living in a beautiful home and having your own business on site?

Our sellers did and have enjoyed every minute of it!

Mike and Amanda decided back in 2009 that they wanted a complete change from busy and stressful jobs and so purchased 'Barn Owls' which gave them a beautiful home to live in along with a very successful business which continues to operate, offering a very lucrative income with flexible and less stress environment, compared to their previous careers.

They will miss the people they have as customers but pastures new in the West Country along with family are taking them away.

This great opportunity could be just what you have been looking for and a further benefit is the detached two bedroom bungalow which would provide a luxury annex for a family member or lucky teenager!

The Barn conversion offers spacious living accommodation and features galleried landings, living/dining room with exposed brickwork and timbers, fireplace with log-burning stove and views from the French doors and windows over the lawned garden.

The fitted kitchen hosts a Range cooker and matching units, there is a family bathroom, four bedrooms and en-suite to the master.

The detached annex bungalow boasts a spacious configuration comprising a large conservatory, living area, kitchen with integrated appliances, dining area, two bedrooms and a contemporary styled bathroom. Further benefits include a garage and garden.

There is also a Dutch Barn which is approximately 60ft x 20ft 8 inch, plus a 48ft x 42ft parking area and then the detached single storey building which contains forty pens and is currently operating as a Cattery.
