Full description

This beautiful house is believed to date from the 17th century. In the 19th century, it is believed the house, according to local, historic records, was used for making and dyeing flannel and at that time was referred to as 'The Old Factory House'. Historic records also show horses being shod to the rear of the house. Many of its period features remain including windows, floorboards, exposed timbers and fireplaces. The barn adjoining the original house was incorporated into the living accommodation creating a magnificent drawing room with exposed 'A' frames and doors opening out to the rear terrace. The front of the property is bordered by low level stone and brick walls leading to a path to the front door and has planted shrub and flower borders. To one side of the house is a paved parking area with mature planting to the rear. To the other side are double gates leading to an extensive gravelled and tarmac parking area with adjoining, level lawn and a stone built garden store. This area could, subject to any necessary consents, be developed to provide an office/studio/annexe with its own garden/parking area. The pretty rear garden has a patio of original flagstones adjoining the house and a level lawn with mature plants and hedging. Hidden away is a 'secret' terrace with stone wall and seating area, a tranquil place to escape and enjoy.
