Accommodation 
East Town Lane is tucked away on the south east outskirts of the village well away from any busy roads. It's a quiet lane which is only used by local residents whose properties are spread out along it. These are mainly substantial period houses. Riverdale is an exceptional property being Grade ll listed as being of special architectural and historic interest. The house is a handsome 2 storey stone building with an attic floor and a hipped and gabled triple Roman tile roof. The house has plenty of accommodation and although currently in poor condition has great charm and appeal. Period details include flagstones, a cross beam ceiling, an inglenook fireplace and oak, elm and pine timbers,

This lawned garden is bounded by a brook as is the large garden on the other side of the house. This has a south facing aspect, is well sheltered and enjoys great privacy. All the gardens are protected by mature trees. Riverdale is a unique property with enormous potential and is ripe for the improvement works which will make it an outstanding house and home.
