You can always tell when a property has been loved, and this property is no exception! This Grade 2 listed property which was once a Butchers shop in the early 19th Century, has stayed true to the beautiful character design with exposed beams and sash windows, but has also undergone some upgrades such as some double glazed windows, modern kitchen/diner and a fabulous annexe barn conversion to the rear.
