Full description This attractive Grade II listed home is full of period features including mullioned windows, exposed beams etc and we understand it was created from combining three cottages into one many years ago. There is an internal date stone of 1723 over the substantial chamfered stone doorway leading from the dining kitchen to the sitting room, suggesting that the property has 'Georgian' origins. There is a large farmhouse kitchen, 2 spacious reception rooms, huge modern bathroom and utility room on the ground floor, whilst at first floor level you will find 6 bedrooms and another bathroom. The property has hardwood double glazed windows, 'Z' braced wooden internal doors with cast iron latches, gas fired central heating, and delightful countryside views from almost every window.
