WOW - this home is amazing and totally unique. Created from 3 original cottages on the site of a former brickyard, this house now looks and feels as luxurious as it could be. The space in each room is breathtaking. The character permeates throughout, yet is complemented by modern creature comforts.

The grounds are quite superb and stretch to approx 2.5 acres in all, with an electric gated entrance to the front of the house and a separate gated entrance to the grounds at the rear, providing ample opportunity for further potential development.

The lake is approximately 0.9 acre in size and provides a fantastic opportunity for the keen fisherman or wildlife enthusiast, with a host of carp varieties in the lake and dragonflies, butterfiles and birds inhabiting the wild grass border of the lake itself.

The gardens are a joy and you'll find a terrace with productive grapevine, sun patios and BBQ areas, a vegetable patch, greenhouse and plenty of chopped wood for the fire among the sheds. Family, friends and young ones will revel in the sun filled space available here.
