A covered porch/patio with lovely views across the countryside entering through french doors into a kitchen/breakfast room of 28.27 m² that leads through a rear hallway and utility area to the living room of 22.83 m² (currently used as a downstairs bedroom), this rear hallway has a door out to the barn, where there is room for a chest freezer and access to the courtyard garden.

Both properties are double glazed, they both benefit from good insulation throughout and are heated via a very efficient air to water heat exchange pump which heats radiators in the main property and underfloor heating in the second. Solar panels on the barn roof create electricity which is sold back to the grid, offering an additional income each year (this covers the electricity costs of running and heating the two properties). The water in the main house is also heated by a solar powered water heater, and in the second house via electric immersion heater. The roofs on both houses and the barn were replaced using new under tiles in the last 12 years, (both house roofs were felted and insulated as well). The main house has a wood burning fire in the living room. The property has a 4000 litre septic tank system that conforms to current regulations. There is also a 4 seater hot tub included in the sale, and a well in the front garden.
