Description The dwelling is believed to date from the turn of the last century and was built as two semi-detached cottages known as Hamilton Cottages. It is believed to have formed part of the Duke of Hamilton’s Estate. It is understood that the property was converted in the late 1940s to a single dwelling. It is of predominantly brick construction under a pan tiled roof. Internally the house requires renovation and modernisation. The house currently comprises a kitchen with adjoining larder and garden room, dining room, sitting room and downstairs bathroom. On the first floor are currently five bedrooms, one of which would make an ideal bathroom.

The house stands in a particularly lovely position and the immediate gardens are approximately half an acre. Adjacent is the former farmyard with a large area of hard standing along with two modern agricultural buildings. It is anticipated that the buildings have scope to be converted to separate dwellings but interested parties should note that the property is not being sold with an overage clause. The agents nor vendors have not carried out any investigation in this respect. Conversion aside, the buildings could be ideal for equestrian use, storage or a business, subject to the normal consents. Adjacent to the house and buildings is the agricultural land. In all the grounds extend to 9.4 acres.
