This former Crichel Estate cottage dates back to 1854, and was traditionally built, with handmade contrasting clay brick elevations, twin gables, stone sills and window features, a clover leaf coloured glass window and a ridged slate roof with feature twisted chimneys.
Occupied by the present owners since 2015, the property has undergone a programme of complete modernisation and refurbishment, but still retains many original features. It is connected to mains electricity and water and has private drainage, a brand new LPG heating system and replacement UPVC double glazed windows.
