The Property 
The Cedars is a stunning period property believed to date back to the mid 1700's which was once occupied by the poet Thomas Moore. Steeped in history, the property boasts a wealth of original features including a flagstone hall floor, heavily beamed ceilings, stripped doors and fireplaces and has been lovingly restored by the current owners through the replacement of many of the windows, a replumbed central heating system and general modernisation and overhaul. Planning consent has recently been granted on 16 January 2015 for subdivision of the existing property to form two independent dwellings and on 17 June 2016 for two substantial detached four bedroom homes with double garages within the gardens. The existing property has the potential to remain as one or to be sub-divided and all the dwellings will benefit from the stunning walled sylvan setting bursting with wildlife and magnificent mature shrubberies, borders and trees.
