A fine Grade II listed village house beautifully presented with views over the surrounding countryside.

It has an interesting history having originally been built as two cottages and then a Public House which closed in the 1950s.The current owners have owned the house since 2015. During their ownership they have carried out an extensive renovation and remodelling programme to create an incredibly comfortable and extremely well-presented village house. Their attention to detail and quality of workmanship is of particular note. The welcoming reception hall provides access to the drawing room as well as the kitchen.

Beyond the drawing room is the study which is beautifully fitted with oak bookcases and cupboards and has French windows out to the garden and further door to the front drive.
