A wonderfully isolated, off-grid, characterful two bedroom cottage set in approx. 18 acres with lovely gardens, stables, garage/workshop, tennis court, lake and pasture, in a glorious location with beautiful views.
The cottage is believed to have been derelict for around 100 years prior to 2007 when it was redeveloped, the outbuildings were built and the beautiful landscaped gardens created. Due to the property’s isolated location, no mains services are available; electricity is provided by a wind turbine with 48kwh battery storage and diesel generator, there is a private borehole water supply, Klargester Biodisc sewerage system and oil-fired underfloor central heating.
The property will be of particular appeal to those seeking privacy and seclusion and it is ideally suited to small-holding or private equestrian use. A public footpath is shown on Ordnance Survey maps running through part of the land, although it leads to a dead-end and it is not believed to have been used in recent years.
Nearby Newtown offers a good range of day to day shops and amenities.
