HISTORICAL BACKGROUND 

An historical survey was conducted on this noteworthy 1620's Farmhouse. A plaque situated above the formal entrance door, bears the inscription in cursive script "Thomas Walton, Elline his wife and Christopher their son AD 1700" This date seems to intimate the contruction date, however, within the property there is evidence that the original origins date back to 1620. The property was completely renovated by the current owner circa 2009 and great attention has been paid to the existing original features as well as sourcing and having bespoke additions to the property where required. There is a stunning internal staircase with a date carved as 1700 and this is a stunning part to this most unique property.
