This impressive period property provides a substantial country home, ideal for anyone who needs a large family home, with potential to generate an income stream as it includes a 4 room annexe, ripe for development into a holiday let; or alternatively it could make a super 'granny' suite.
The current owners have made considerable improvements to the property and it is beautifully presented, retaining a wealth of character and features. Originally the farm house for Craik Farm, the property has been sympathetically extended to the side in the past, but in addition to the aforementioned undeveloped annexe at the rear, it has scope to be enlarged further into the fantastic fully floored attic space.
Approached by a private gravelled driveway, creating generous parking and turning space, the house is set upon good sized grounds, including a side area laid to lawn, a rear courtyard with a productive raised vegetable and herb garden and there is also a greenhouse set to the side. For the equestrian, the property enjoys the advantage of a four acre paddock located just a short stroll from the house.

Set in the heart of the Craik Forest, the small hamlet of Craik is approached from Roberton by a single track road with passing places, where the sheep roam free and the landscapes are stunning and inspirational. It is a fantastic location, which will undoubtedly be of appeal to those who yearn for a quiet country lifestyle, but don't want to be isolated, as there is a scattering of houses nearby.
For those with Sat Nav, use of the post code will take you a little further than required.
