Description

A fascinating Grade II listed period residence of great character, the original hall dating from about 1500, being a timber framed building with a tiled gable facing the road and with a projecting chimney stack on the corner. There is exposed timber framing except on the first floor right which is tile hung, there are various 19th century casements. The smithy buildings are weather boarded, all with tiled roofs.
It was last occupied as a smithy in the mid 1950's, Miss Dorothy Brown was the daughter of the last blacksmith and lived at the cottage until about 1982, it was after this that major renovations were carried out, an extension to the smithy building was built about ten years ago to provide a sun room/office with the internal retention of the original well.
Internally the property retains many period features including an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, exposed timbers and original floors and doors.
