Oatlands House and farm buildings, as a whole has the
potential to create a single large lifestyle home with
ancillary accommodation. Alternatively, it is available
as two separate plots.

Farm House (Plot A)

now requiring modernisation, a rare and exciting
opportunity to create a stunning family home in a
highly sought after location.

store room, Cellar, Breakfast kitchen, dining/living
room with fire place, further reception room currently
being used as a bedroom with ensuite shower, inner
hallway with stairs to the first floor as well as an
exterior door directly out to the south facing garden.
To the first floor, there are 4 bedrooms and a large
bathroom which would lend itself to being split into
two rooms, creating a further bedroom whilst retaining
a spacious bathroom. Outside, there is a stone
outbuilding and greenhouse adjacent to the house.

To the front of the property is a south facing garden
with open countryside views. Separate paddock/
land extends to the both the southerly and easterly
aspect of the house extending to 1.17 acres (0.47 Ha)

farm buildings which have potential for conversion
to residential or alternative uses, subject to the
