Full Details

The Property
This charming former Gighouse is Grade II Listed and dates from c1830. It is of coursed, squared limestone construction with an ashlar plinth. There are many period features including a number of fireplaces, exposed timbers and original floorboards on the upper floors. It has been improved and well maintained by the current owners, with the external joinery having just been repainted. The large garage is perhaps best suited for a classic car, or presumably could be incorporated into the living accommodation, subject to obtaining the necessary Listed building consent. The walled courtyard is a delightful feature and is very secluded.

An opening leads into the dining area, with an open fireplace fitted with a log burning stove. A large sash window to the front has shutters and a window seat.
