The property comprises a former blacksmith's shop/barn known as 'The Old Smithy', which is currently derelict and in need of full renovation, but does lend itself nicely to residential conversion, subject to planning permission.

The original detached single storey structure is of stone and solid brick construction beneath a pitched, timber frame and slate roof, having a concrete floor and 4 double door access points along the front elevation.

Outside, the is a tarmacadam area to the front of the building, which provides car parking for 2 vehicles and a small enclosed plot of land/garden ground to the side and rear.

The property is the subject of an unimplemented planning permission for residential development, involving the conversion and extension of the existing building to provide a 2-bedroom dwelling with associated driveway and gardens.

The historic planning consent allows for a hallway, kitchen/diner, master bedroom with en-suite, second bedroom and family bathroom within the existing floor space; complemented by a single storey extension to the eastern elevation to accommodate a living area/lounge, which opens onto the garden ground.
