The Property
The Pele Tower is an impressive 14th Century four storey tower house attached to a 19th Century Tudor style house (in separate ownership). The property carries a Grade II* listing. The tower was originally a vicar’s pele and is of significant historic interest with features which include 8ft thick stone walls, vaulted ceilings, a stone spiral staircase, stone fireplaces and stone flagged floors. These original features really do put the property in a league of its own and buyers really should view to appreciate them and to see how they play their part in the presentation of this timeless building. Accommodation, unsurprisingly, is extremely generous and comprises entrance hall, drawing room, dining room, study, dining kitchen, shower room and conservatory (which forms a most attractive rear entrance to the Tower). To the first floor there are 4 bedrooms and a bathroom. On the second floor there are 2 further bedrooms and a second bathroom (all recently renovated).

The Tower has a wing beyond the kitchen (down to the basement) previously dedicated to independent letting with accommodation comprising:- lounge, kitchen, 2 bedrooms, bathroom and separate WC. The wing is now in need of modernisation.

The Pele Tower is approached from the road by a private driveway opening into a turning circle with a lovely lawned garden.

Mains electricity, gas and water. Private Drainage (shared with 2 additional properties).
