Description: 'High Frith' is a wonderful, comfortable house dating back to the early 17th Century and extended some years later. Built of solid construction under a slate roof this superb Family Home enjoys a lovely peaceful setting adjoining open countryside and stands prominently within its own private grounds of about ¾ of an acre.

The spacious internal accommodation retains much original character, yet offers a new owner the splendid opportunity to re-furbish to their own requirements. With 3 Reception Rooms, Kitchen, Utility on the Ground Floor plus Cellar, 5 Bedrooms and 2 Bathrooms there is ample living space. There are also the Attic Rooms which are currently utilised as 3 separate rooms and could be converted into En-Suite Bedrooms or a Master Suite if so desired subject to the relevant building regulations.

Outside the level Gardens are filled with many specimen trees, shrubs and fruit trees, secluded summer houses and vegetable garden. The Courtyard has a variety of Outhouses including Garaging, Fuel Store, Work Room, Shippons, Barns, Office, Stables/Loose Boxes, Wash House etc etc.

This is a fantastic opportunity for those seeking a Family Home in a secluded area and early inspection is an absolute 'must'.
