If houses could speak we are sure there would be many a tale to tell from beneath the roof of this fine old house. Understood to originate in the 16th century (the south east corner) which in the eighteenth century was greatly enlarged as a farmhouse across the front and side, framing the study/library attributed to the architect Anthony Keck in the middle. We now discover a substantial period home set at the head of a 0.6 acre plot, all just minutes' walk from the amenities of the High Street. There is a gated driveway to the side, parking and garaging, sweeping lawns and a highly desirable southerly rear aspect. We step into a grand reception hall with a welcoming fireplace and grand staircase. This leads off to the four reception rooms and the kitchen with a door to the vaulted cellar below. There are five bedrooms and two bathrooms on the first floor, plus additional staircases at each end leading up to a sixth bedroom, third bathroom and the attic rooms. Bags of character, bags of space and too many points of interest to list within the confines of this paragraph. If you are looking to own something quite unique, with a view to continuing the stewardship of this lovely old home into the 21st century, we would love to hear from you.
