The property enjoys an attractive vaulted sitting room which is the centrepiece of its extensive ground floor accommodation. Whilst in reasonable order the property may benefit from improvements yet offers much in the way of charm. Within the impressive grounds, there are over 4,000 sq ft of outbuildings with a certificate of lawful use for the operation of a vehicle repairs and restoration business. Offered with no forward chain Stoneymarsh House is a versatile and an interesting opportunity.
