Lot 1: The farmhouse, agricultural buildings and 21.91 acres of land: Guide Price: £1,750,000

A turnkey construction completed in 2008, Highfield Farm farmhouse is sympathetically clad in natural local stone and finished to an exceptionally high standard with handmade solid oak windows and doors throughout.

The ground floor of the farmhouse has a welcoming porch and hallway leading into a spacious kitchen fully fitted.
