Description - 9 Strete Ralegh is an attached, converted former stable to the adjacent Strete Ralegh Manor which was divided into various properties in the 1980s. The house is of brick construction with tiled roof and benefits from upvc double glazing. There is parking and a private enclosed rear courtyard.

The property is surrounded by over 7 acres of wonderful landscaped parkland which is used communally. Ideal also as a second home or as a buy-to-let investment.
