Laurels Farm is a detached double fronted farmhouse thought to date back to the Eighteen hundreds. It stands proudly on the Main Street of the village with a Northerly Aspect and as with many similar farmhouses over time has received a rendered surface under a pantile roof. To the eastern side of the property is its good sized garden and to the west an adjoining barn with an obvious potential to convert into further accommodation. Inside, the property can boast a Farmhouse kitchen of tremendous proportions with an oil fired 'Stanley' range, ample room for a dining table and steps down into a sizeable pantry.  To the front of the house are two reception rooms with open fires and a central hall leading to a cloakroom and the stairs to the first floor. Upstairs there are three bedroom served by a house bathroom. A further enclosed staircase leads up to, and divides a versatile loft room that again could easily convert into extra accommodation.

To the rear of the property are a lean to row of stone kennels and an additional stone outbuilding. The garden is down mostly to lawn with some mature trees to its Northern boundary and there is ample parking for a number of vehicles.

The property would benefit from some refurbishment but also has a great potential to increase in size; with the relevant planning consents.
