Why You'll Like It
This elegant farmhouse of fine proportions has a beautiful granite exterior at the front and is pleasantly set back in a mature front garden. The house is positioned towards the edge of the land (which is thought to be approximately 7 acres in total) and benefits from a pretty access lane with gorgeous hedgerows and an abundance of parking space in the former farmyard. There is an attached one bedroom annexe and two very large parking/ storage barns. In addition the property has a large music studio for which the owners have made a preapplication for planning advice as to whether this has the potential to be converted into a dwelling (decision outstanding) PA22/00849/PREAPP. To the rear of the farmhouse there is an area of formal garden with lawn and sunny patio before the land which is divided into three very useful and large fields. To the side of the largest field there is a disused flooded quarry which the owners enjoy as a wildlife haven. The main farmhouse is presented in good decorative order and has been a much loved family home with some alterations made to suit modern living including opening up the living space. Stepping inside there is a welcoming entrance hallway with cloakroom/ WC. The living room is a large triple aspect open space with a Villager wood burning stove as the focal point. Throughout the house there are some beautiful character features and the turning stair bannister is a great example. The living room has French doors to the sunny rear patio. The kitchen/ dining room has an attractive farmhouse kitchen with a gorgeous Aga at its heart and island unit with breakfast bar seating space. There are further built in appliances including the Bosch multifunction single oven and built in microwave, a 5 ring LPG gas hob with extractor and an integrated dishwasher plus an Insinkerator trash compactor. From the kitchen sink there is a super view up the garden towards the field. The kitchen dining room has plenty of space for a large farmhouse table and chairs and there is a charming window seat looking out to the front garden. From the kitchen there is a connecting door to the attached one bedroom annexe joining up the two spaces but equally giving the option to lock them off as separate properties in effect. The annexe comprises; one bedroom, living room, kitchen and shower room and would make a great Airbnb or ideal multi generational living space. Up on the first floor there is a light and bright landing which is dominated by the beautiful stained glass, arched window which has a view over the land. There are four bedrooms in total, three of which are good doubles and one which has an en-suite shower room. There is a large family bathroom with a corner bath, separate shower enclosure and white suite with pedestal basin, WC and bidet.
Outside there are two very large barns which are ideal for storage and parking. There's a detached music studio which has been used for recording and practising and has a shower room with WC. The music studio has a great deal of future potential and the vendors have made a pre application for advice as to whether it has residential potential PA22/00849/PREAPP awaiting decision.
The largest field is immediately behind they farmhouse and music studio, sloping gently up away from the house. At the top of the large field there is a disused, flooded quarry which comes as part of the overall parcel of land and has been enjoyed as a haven for wildlife. The owners have in the past stocked the lake with approximately 100 fish. A lane at the top of the large field connects it with the next field over and also the road making both fields very accessible for vehicles and machinery. There's a further field to the side of the farm house making three in total with the grounds thought to total in the region of seven acres. The views from the land are outstanding including views of the nearby Stithians Lake.

The walk around the lake is very pretty too. The Golden Lion Pub at the lake is famed for Sunday lunch and in Stithians village itself you have all the village facilities you'd expect with a convenience shop, primary school, church and many sports and social clubs.
