A unique opportunity to acquire three properties in approximately 4.4 acres

This is a unique opportunity to acquire three properties and the surrounding grounds which equate to approximately 4.4 acres. Newhouse Farm Cottage is a charming 16th century Grade II listed 5-bedroom farmhouse of immense character with exposed beams, an inglenook fireplace and an Aga. The house looks out over a long garden which stretches down to the lake and adjacent Tea House. Most surprising of all is the historical arboretum planted by the grandson of renowned plant hunter/botanist, Robert Fortune, who introduced a plethora of specimen trees and plants to these shores. Mature palm trees, rhododendrons, azaleas and camellias fill this garden and can be enjoyed, interspersed with local sculptures, whilst meandering the many pathways, and a fabulous Victorian pond which looks across to Inglenook Cottage. It is important to note that this dwelling can be accessed via a separate lane off the main private lane and there is planning permission in place to add a 3 bay garage. The smallest house is known as The Chalet and is tucked away, making this the ideal spot for a home office or recreation room or studio. It benefits from all services and has a wood burning stove.

This property has 4.4 acres of land.
