Woodpecker Lass House runs directly onto the main street of High Catton enjoying spacious two storey living accommodation albeit requiring a programme of modernisation and upgrading.

To the ground floor is a large reception hall which accesses both the study and sitting room located at the front of the property. Essentially there is a separate dining room with walk-in pantry and access to the kitchen which is located at the side of the property. To the rear is a spacious utility room and crucially the property has a downstairs WC.

To the first floor are three double bedrooms in addition to the house bathroom.

One of the most attractive features of Woodpecker Lass House is the generous rear garden creating the ideal family environment. The garden stretches to approximately 100 feet in length, features a timber built mutli-purpose outbuilding.. The property is enclosed to the side and rear by walled and hedged boundaries with substantial screening trees overlooking the rear boundary.


By planning reference DC/19/02299/PLF/WESTWW, planning consent has been granted for the conversion of the existing outbuilding into a single storey one bedroom dwelling. The developable area is around 40 m and will be serviced by a joint access with Woodpecker Lass House.

Crucially there will be allocated hard standing to the rear providing off street parking and the barn, if sold separately will benefit from a 100 ft rear garden.

Potential purchasers should satisfy themselves that service connections of water, electricity and drainage can be made by making enquiries to the appropriate service providers.
