LOT 1: Farmhouse, farm buildings and land extending in total to 25.11 acres
The farmhouse is a Grade II listed, detached, three storey farmhouse of stone construction under a slate roof. The house would benefit from a scheme of modernisation but provides an exciting opportunity to create a substantial family home. The ground floor comprises a large farmhouse kitchen with Stanley oil fired range cooker with pantry, reception room with log burning stove and conservatory as well as a downstairs WC. Over the first floor there are three bedrooms and a family bathroom, on the second floor there are two further attic bedrooms.

The farmhouse benefits from a Grade II listed walled garden with lawns, mature shrubs and trees. The farmhouse also benefits from oil fired central heating, mains water and mains electricity. Drainage is via a septic tank drainage system. Buyers should be aware that this is unlikely to meet the required standards detailed in the new General Binding Rules. Any Potential Purchasers should satisfy themselves of the condition of the septic tank.

Roadnook Farm benefits from a traditional range of stone and brick farm buildings situated around a concrete yard. The buildings include a two storey range comprising a feed barn and store place, with adjoining single storey lean-to comprising two stables and a further lean-to with store place. Further traditional buildings include a former stone dairy and further store building. The modern farm buildings include four livestock buildings of steel portal frame construction, with concrete panel walls, Yorkshire boarding and fibre cement roofs as well as a machinery store of timber pole construction, a lean-to steel portal framed machinery/implement store and a silage clamp.

Included within Lot 1 is the former Chapel of stone and brick construction with slate roof. Dating from 1673, this Grade II listed building offers an exciting development opportunity for potential diversification projects subject to planning.
