5 Bed Detached Villa - Offers Over £700,000
Presented to the market in impeccable condition, Carterhouse is a remarkable, two-storey detached farmhouse surrounded by an approximate 38.92 acres (15.75 hectares) of which the property solely owns.

Accessed via the entrance hallway of the principal accommodation, the extension affords the property with a two-bedroom annex that could serve as a self-contained semi-detached house or be utilised as part of the home as one. The annex has been constructed to be in keeping with the original features and aesthetic of Cartherhouse and overall comprises of a further kitchenette / dining room, sitting room, porch and WC on the ground floor as well as two generously proportioned double bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor.
