Five bedroom country house

This characterful house enjoys stunning views, a wealth of history and character and is wonderfully situated near the end of a country road serving just four houses (formerly the main road but long by passed and terminated leaving it in a lovely relatively traffic free location) The property is well situated with extensive gardens and is only attached at the ground floor by one wall to the neighbouring (single story) historic old stable block which is now also a family home. This extensive property is constructed of predominantly stone and bricks and the walls are interestingly some 18 inches thick in places containing a wealth of history and character within.
