Shiel Farmhouse is originally of a traditional stone and lime construction under a pitched timber framed slate covered roof. The property was extended in 2017 to form a double height wing with a pitched slate roof, coupled with a slate grey firestone flat roofed membrane extension the rear of the original structure. The house now extends to approx. 249m2 providing a very attractive double height sunroom, a comfortable and cosy kitchen, boot room, utility, shower room with water closet, dining room and living

room, both of which could be used as bedrooms on the ground floor, with three double bedrooms, one of which is en-suite, and a family bathroom on the first floor.

There is a large double garage adjacent and a manicured garden which wraps around the northern and eastern elevations. The driveway has recently been tarred providing ample off-street parking in addition to the adjacent garage and which leads onto an extensive patio area to both the front and rear. There is a kennel and range of stores beyond before opening out into the farm yard.

The property benefits from mains electricity, an oil-fired central heating system and is double glazed throughout, while water and drainage are private.


There are a range of modern and traditional agricultural buildings and a Portacabin office which are currently used as the hub for the retail business and management.

Beyond the fixed structures the wider farmyard is conveniently laid out with plenty of space for turning vehicles with large concrete aprons or hardcore standing areas and more than adequate drainage. Around the periphery of the yard there are a number of secondary storage areas where crushed materials have been spread providing further easy access to manage stock and inbound/outbound deliveries.
