Backing onto open countryside, this imposing and detached home was formerly used in the preparation of butter and dates back to approximately 1730. Enjoying particularly generous proportions and beautiful gardens backing onto open countryside, this charming property offers significant scope to improve.
Originally dating from 1730 with later additions this unique detached cottage has been under the ownership of the present family for the last forty years or so. Steeped in history and full of character, the cottage retains two inglenook fireplaces in the dining hall and sitting room, beamed ceilings and flagstone floors. The property offers generous and well-proportioned accommodation laid out over three floors, however, a thoughtful and sympathetic programme of renovation is now required.
