The property is approached via Fold lane, a narrow private unmade track off Smithy Lane which winds up through a farmstead before reaching a small group of properties of which Broadstone Farm is one. Fold Lane continues up past the property where it meets with Edge Lane however, vehicle access to Edge Lane from Fold Lane is not possible.
An attractive stone set drive leads down from Fold Lane to Broadstone Farm and the neighbouring single dwelling that adjoins the farmhouse. The private parking and two redundant cottages are situated to the left of the drive with the gardens beyond.
The house is entered via a vestibule to the hall with the inner hall to the right having a fine staircase leading to the first floor with half landing and arch topped window. Beneath the stairs is a useful cloakroom with w.c., and basin and a door giving access to the cellar steps. The cellar is now walled off as it extends beneath the neighbouring property although the steps provide a useful store.
The main living room extends full width across the front of the house having a solid fuel cast iron open fire set on a stone hearth, feature beams to high ceilings and two large windows with super views creating a light, airy feel.
The kitchen has a range of base and wall units with tiled work surface, stainless steel sink and drainer, four ring electric ceramic hob (BOSCH) with filter hood above and plumbing for a dishwasher. There is a cream coloured two oven oil Aga, pine panelled walls and beam and boarded ceiling and access to the adjoining barn.
The first floor landing gives way to three bedrooms and a house bathroom. Bedroom 1 is a generous double room with feature fireplace, beams and super views.

The house bathroom has a three piece suite in cream comprising a panelled bath with shower over, w.c., with concealed cistern and a basin with vanity base unit.
There is a generous loft area accessed from the landing via a ladder currently providing useful storage. The loft space offers scope to create additional accommodation subject to planning and building regulations.
The barn is accessed either from the kitchen or from outside via the main arched barn entrance which opens into the full height central passage with stone flag floor, plumbing for a washing machine, sink and the oil fired boiler. The second barn arch which is now glazed looks out over the terraced seating area and open countryside beyond.
