INFORMATION This Grade II Listed home has been sympathetically extended to create the current five bedroom accommodation.  The original is believed to date from the 1750’s with painted brick elevations under a slate roof and retains its original style sash windows.  The property was extended and updated in 1996 with red brick elevations under a slate roof windows to the extension are sealed unit double glazed.  Heating with radiators throughout is via a gas fired combi boiler.  A further extension was completed in 2001 to extend the kitchen to create a large kitchen/living/dining room with doors to the garden.
