DESCRIPTION Townhead Farm is a charming settlement comprising a 5 bed detached period house with generous garden, detached barn (Grade II Listed Bastle) and adjoining paddock with stream, in all around 5 acres. The accommodation is well balanced and has great character. The heart of this home is the generous farmhouse kitchen with Shaker style units and sleek granite worktops. An AGA features in a wide recess and there are two replacement sash windows and an external door. The living space does not disappoint. The sitting room is a spacious, calm space with sandstone fireplace and wood burning stove. The dining room has a timber floor and like the sitting room faces southwest. The sunroom has French doors to the garden and provides a quiet and private place to relax in. On the first floor are the five bedrooms and modern bathroom and shower room. 

OUTSIDE Pleasant lawned garden and small wood. The adjoining 4.5 acre paddock has stream on one boundary. Of interest is the Grade II* Listed byre with cobbled courtyard and store above, formerly Bastle house. Probably mid C16, with initials TD thought to be initials of Thomas, Lord Dacre who died 1566.
