Backhill of Knaven farmhouse and outbuildings are of traditional build stone and slate, the deceptively spacious farmhouse with accommodation over two floors requires slight modernization and upgrading but is a fantastic family home with uninterrupted panoramic views over the rolling countryside and mature gardens. The property is heated by electric storage/panel heaters in each room and 2 multi fuel stoves. The original farmhouse and outbuildings are generally in a usable condition. Planning permissions for the conversion of the steading to a 4 bed detached house and extensions to the existing dwelling house have both lapsed. With its rural location and minutes from several small towns, the property presents the perfect purchase for the young family or a fantastic investment for the small developer or ideal location for an equestrian centre.
The accommodation includes a rear porch leading to the kitchen, spacious family room with multi-fuel fire and doors leading to the dining room and conservatory. A further reception room/bedroom 3, and a family bathroom with shower over the bath, on the first floor there are two double bedrooms with large velux windows. In addition there are ample storage cupboards on both floors.
Gardens/Outside: A sweeping country road leads to the large grounds that this spacious farmhouse and outbuildings currently occupy. A wooded tree line and wildflower gardens are a beautiful addition to this property where the local wildlife is seen on a daily basis. The gardens are mostly laid to lawn with an abundance of mature trees, shrubs, plants and seasonal flowers; parking for a multitude of vehicle types are available in and around the premises.
The property sits on approximately 9 acres fenced and laid to grass with 2 microlight airstrips cut through the centre allowing the current owner to fly his microlight aircraft from home
