Sheepfold Grange is situated in a high elevated position on the edge of the rural village. Constructed of stone under a slate roof and set over three floors, the property has wonderful far reaching views over the surrounding countryside. The accommodation is spacious but would benefit from updating and possible room rejigging.
Features include flagstone floors, window seats, some window shutters and two bay windows in the drawing room and dining room. To the rear are an extensive range of outbuildings and stables surrounding a concrete courtyard which need renovating but have great potential.
Sheepfold is accessed by a drive which leads to a gravelled area to the front. The gardens surround the property on three sides and comprise principally lawn areas. To the north is a paddock which is part post and rail. There is access from Frenches Row to the rear of the property.
