Description Traditional English Properties Ltd are a small dedicated team of local tradesmen formed in 1996 with a desire to build and renovate to an uncompromising standard, specialising in unique developments with character.

Offered with no onward chain, this attractive timber framed residence believed to originally be two residences dating back to the 1500's, boasts spacious and flexible accommodation, oil fired central heating with radiators split onto three zones with programmable room thermostats for economy and flexible control, double glazing and fine retained period features throughout including a wealth of exposed timber framing, inglenook fireplaces, sash windows and oak flooring.
