A rare opportunity to purchase a versatile, artistic rural retreat complete with professional recording studio whether for a lifestyle change or investment. Situated in a private and idyllic location, surrounded by few neighbours, rolling farmland and woodlands, this is the first time Candyland Studios has been on the market for over 55 years. Located down a private driveway surrounded by its own gardens and land amounting to 12 acres (the neighbour has a right of access along the driveway).
The property consists of a collection of unique outbuildings and conversions comprising a detached single storey three bedroom (self-built) cabin constructed from reclaimed materials. The Coach House, advertised as 'The Tractor Shed', is a detached two storey, four bedroom former stone barn and coach house building. Also within the grounds is a (self-built) two bedroom raised tree house style cabin and a converted bus called 'Woodland Retreat'. The owners currently operate the properties as a lucrative holiday letting business, providing an attractive income but has the potential to be expanded into caravan, camping/glamping or wedding venue subject to the relevant permissions and approvals.
Alternatively, the accommodation would be ideal for equestrian or hobby farming buyers, musicians having a full recording studio on site or other lifestyle home businesses such as a yoga or wellness retreat, the options could be endless. The layout of the accommodation and approximate dimensions are more clearly shown on the accompanying floorplan and the boundary can be found on the accompanying landplan.SPECIAL NOTE
