Situated in the heart of the charming and much sought after village of Wethersfield is this beautifully presented and deceptively spacious Grade II listed family home. Boasting just under 2000sqft of living accommodation, Top Shop combines a wonderful mix of original period features and modern living. Formerly part of Virginia House, Top Shop has references dating back to the 16th Century and historically served the village as a local store.
