This detached family home dates back to 1902, built for brewery owner James Shipstones daughters wedding.
Boasting a wealth of original features including fireplaces, cornices, and covings, the property provides six bedroom accommodation over three floors, along with four bathrooms and a shower room, plus spacious reception rooms, a study, kitchen, utility room and boot room.
Set in mature gardens which extend to around an acre, the property also has a greenbelt paddock measuring approximately 2.5 acres which enjoys a boundary of Fairham Brook.
Providing an ideal investment opportunity, the original, updated coach house now forms a separate annex which is currently being used by the current owners to earn income as a holiday let. The annex includes two bedrooms, a lounge/dining room, kitchen, conservatory and bathroom and also enjoys its own gated parking and garden area.
Viewing is essential.
