The current owners acquired the site as bare land in 1991 and created a well regarded, horticultural nursery business; which in turn led to the planning consent to build a residential dwelling for themselves to live in.
In August 2019 the business was closed due to the owners retiring but much of the infrastructure [modern barn plus the display garden & deer-proof boundary fencing] remains intact. There is no agricultural tie on this property.

stone tiled roof; with a light triple aspect sitting room with
woodburning stove, as well as double aspect traditional farmhouse
kitchen/ diner with electric blue Aga plus walk-in larder and many
more features/accommodation. To the side/rear of the house,
originally a double garage, was converted to form an annexe
together with the addition of a sizeable sun room on the rear.
