Full description

Higher Briercliffe is the film set location for the upcoming BBC One film, "Reg," a new drama by Jimmy McGovern. Tim Roth of "Reservoir Dogs" will be the lead role to play Reg Keys.

Set in an elevated rural position with outstanding open views to the front, this is a substantial five bedroom family home set in approximately two acres of land and approached by its own private driveway. This spacious family home has four reception rooms with a superb fitted Mills and Scott kitchen, Mills and Scott family bathroom and Mills and Scott fitted master bedroom together with en-suite. All of the bedrooms have fitted bedroom furniture. Bedroom five is currently used as a study.

This is a truly practical family home set in an idyllic rural position and in our opinion requires an inspection for its size and location to be fully appreciated.
