So it offers a lot of history including the fact that it was a working farm so the cowshed and hay barn were part of the house with the occupants living above for warmth before the days of heating.
The owner has researched the property and has found an early map of the village which shows that this was the first house built outside the medieval chateau walls, a lovely piece of history to go with the property.
The stone barn dates back to 1854 having today been fully restored. The main house has also been rebuilt and reformed leaving the original stone walls standing with the rest rebuilt. The house has been reroofed and rendered in the traditional chalk render.
