WHY SHOULD YOU LIVE HERE? What our vendor says about their property:
"The main living room and room above are thought to be late Tudor. It was carefully restored so the property has an historic feel as well as the potential to blend old and new. The garden is large, secluded and very private with a high former quarry wall to the east and some beautiful trees. There is ample potential offered by the plentiful accommodation, which is additional to the main house. The large outbuilding to the north has been re-roofed in the last two years".
