Full description

Dating as far back as 1716, as evidenced by the original engraving above the lintel in the kitchen, with a lounge beam re-purposed from an old sailing ship, this property is positively bursting with character and charm you'll struggle to find anywhere else. It's not often we're able to boast about a home with two woodburners which are supplied by wood from the vast grounds of the property, or that has its own page in Smith's History of Chipping book. Terms like 'one of a kind' or 'unique' are used a lot in the property game, but we can guarantee you've never seen anywhere quite like Little Blacksticks before, especially on a clear day when you can see as far as the Welsh mountains!
