With five bedrooms, two reception rooms, two fully-fitted bathrooms, and a large kitchen and utility area, this stone-built former farmhouse is currently under refurbishment by L Developments, with an aim to give this family home a new lease of life. Brimming with quirky period features, bags of character and exposed stone feature walls, L Developments is keen to preserve the rustic charm of this house, whilst giving it much-needed modernisation.

A contemporary farmhouse-style kitchen with solid oak worktops and integrated appliances will ensure this room becomes the heart of the family home, whilst two generous reception rooms – featuring an open fire, log-burner and exposed beams throughout – maintain the building’s impressive history. Upstairs, exposed floorboards and an unusual layout, with four double bedrooms and one single bedroom, continue to contribute to the charm of this deceptively large family home.

Sitting on a substantial amount of land, L Developments saw the potential to build another property within the grounds of the original house. Working with a local architectural firm, planning has been granted for an 86 square-metre, two-bedroom bungalow with an open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. Like the original property, the bungalow – planned for completion by December 2016 – will have a contemporary style, with Velux roof lights, French doors from the master bedroom and living area onto the patio, and an impressive solid timber entrance porch. Each of the properties will have its own separate garage and a private driveway with shared access.
