This unique and cosy home was once part of a steam mill and is the last remaining Victorian part of the building. It then became a bookies and it wasn’t until eight years ago it was totally renovated into living accommodation.
While the property may be narrow (to say the least), the one-bedroom house could make an ideal bachelor pad or pied-a-terre. The Check House overlooks a communal garden and courtyard, and has an unusual upside-down design – the kitchen and living room are above the bedroom and bathroom.
