Riggiston Farm is an attractively located agricultural property, comprising a detached house, along with an extensive range of traditional stone buildings, together with a former yard and paddock, extending to approximately 3.31 acres. The option for an additional three fields extending to approximately 15.56acres is available by separate negotiation. Previously operated as a dairy farm, the adaptability of the property is complemented by an extensive range of outbuildings, which offer potential for alternative uses (subject to the necessary planning consents).



ACCOMMODATION:
The farmhouse can be accessed via either rear or front elevations. Both open to a welcoming reception hall running through the heart of the property and linking all ground floor rooms. An abundance of character and charm is evident here and alludes to that which is found throughout. Period features include exposed ceiling beams, flagstone floors and timber panelled walls. Accommodation includes an informal breakfast room featuring an inglenook-style fireplace, now fitted with cabinets and an oil-fired Stanley cooker. A separate kitchen features a comprehensive range of fitted wall and base units with contrasting work surfaces, tiled splash backs and one and a half bowl drainer sink with mixer tap. Space is provided here for a wide range of freestanding appliances. The cosy sitting room has a large cupbaord and also retains plenty of character features such as recessed wooden window seats, exposed Blue Lias stone chimney and a large log-burning stove. A separate formal dining room provides a wonderful space to entertain with the fabulous inglenook fireplace providing a true feeling of grandeur, including a Minster-style fireplace and recessed displays within. Flagstone floors continue throughout the dining room and the internal lobby where there is access to a cloakroom as well as stairs rising to the first floor.

The central landing leads to three excellent size double bedrooms, two of which feature fitted cupboards, and all three enjoy fabulous countryside views in various directions. The fourth bedroom could accommodate a double bed or provide a generous single room or office. These bedrooms are served by a washroom with flush WC and wash basin, and a dressing/bathroom with a wide array of fitted cupboards as well as an enclosed shower cubicle. We envisage that re-modelling of this room could provide a very impressive family bathroom indeed.

The formal rear garden is generous in proportion, denoted by stock proof borders and comprising a large formal lawn, vegetable plots, small orchard and poultry coup.

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
