This lovely former farmhouse home on the village outskirts can easily be described as being in a quiet rural setting. But this peaceful location is close to the amenities Malborough has to offer and most of all really charming.

It also has a detached home office and workshop all within a little over ¾ of an acre.

Approached over a shared private roadway the property and neighbouring detached barn conversion are ensured privacy from the village. Newhouse Farmhouse is mainly of traditional stone construction under a slate roof with a part rendered and painted exterior. Double glazed windows, some PVCu, have, to a major part been fitted to the oil centrally heated light and airy accommodation of this very well presented comfortable and inviting home which comprises:
