A splendid, Grade II listed period home with tremendous character, located in a peaceful village location.

This distinctive home has origins dating back to the 18th century and was once part of the Shaftesbury Estate, the main part of the house was originally thought to be a barn with later additions.

The house was once, back during the 18th century, occupied by exiled French lace makers (Huguenots) who carried out alterations to the property which included the striking circular bays.

During the 19th Century, further additions were made to the house, adding both the west and east wings, creating the house as it is today. EPR: E
