West Hole House is believed to date back to the 1880's and was the principle Farmhouse to the west of Newton St Petrock. The property presents white rendered elevations beneath a slate tiled roof and in 2006 the former attached long barn was converted into two self-contained holiday cottages. The property enjoys a rural outlook in a quiet farming community with just a couple of near neighbours. There is a parking area to the front for numerous vehicles with allocated space for the cottages, detached garage/workshop, stone outbuilding and extensive gardens wrapping around the property in an idyllic stream setting. The property is being offered with no onward chain, ideal for buyers looking for a country lifestyle with income potential.WEST HOLE HOUSE
