This comfortable, charming home is believed to date back to the 18th Century. Originally a timber framed cottage under a thatched roof (recently re-ridged and dressed); It was extended in the 19th Century to now provide an exciting mixture of traditional and more modern accommodation. The property is Grade II Listed through its significant Architectural and Historic interest. It has been well-maintained by the current owners, to include noise reduction double glazing, but does offer scope for further updating if so required. A viewing is highly recommended to appreciate the extent of the potential the home has to offer and accommodation that it provides.
