The property was built in the 1930s by Percy Hunter, the well-regarded local boat builder who established Hunters Yard, within sight of the house, which is still in operation today, offering enthusiasts the chance to hire their distinctive fleet of traditional wooden sailing yachts.
The current owners bought it in 2003 and became only the third owners of the house. They were drawn to the private, quiet and picturesque setting, surrounded by rural and riverside walks, and by the massive potential that the property offered, as at the time it was a very dated 2 bedroom cottage.
Since then they have been responsible for the extensive programme of works that have transformed the property into the spacious, 6 bedroom property it is today.
