There is ample dining space within the kitchen but in addition there is a formal Dining Room; the Master Bedroom has en suite Bathroom. Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is an Entrance Porch and also a rear Utility Area with Shower Room and Office off. Upstairs there are two bedrooms with front facing dormer windows. The bedrooms are both doubles. There is a second Bathroom at first floor. The house is in excellent decorative order throughout. Windows are double glazed and central heating is by way of oil.
The south facing garden to the front of the house is predominantly down in lawn. The garden is enclosed by hedge and is planted with a variety of established shrubs. Along the front of the house is a gravelled space from where paved steps afford access to sun lounge/garden room.
At the rear of the house the farm buildings are arranged in such a way as to from a yard and here there is ample parking for several vehicles.

The buildings are a variety of traditional random stone and slate steading and more modern general purpose buildings.
Artnoch is approached on its own private road which comes in from the A714.
The ground essentially comprises two fields which are positioned either side of the private road. Taking in the fields, the garden and the area occupied by the buildings the total area occupied by Artnoch is approx 12 acres.
The property has its own pond which is located in the bottom corner of the larger of the 2 fields and this is a great attraction for wildlife. In fact Artnoch has wildlife in abundance with our clients reporting sightings of heron and ducks have bred at the pond. The farm is also home to woodpeckers and red squirrels.
