Agents comments:- Cowley Groves are pleased to offer a pristine example of Victorian grandeur from high level ceilings to feature fireplaces and timeless courtyard cottages, this property has it all.
A real hidden gem!
Three times I have been to this home and each time I see something new.
Whilst writing these comments i’m sat in a wicker chair in the corner of the room in Abbecott which is the cottage located to the entrance of the property, i’m looking up at the exposed oak beams and a small fireplace. Imagine what these four walls have seen in their lifetime.
There are endless possibilities with regards to this home - from having the whole family living together to having a number of holiday cottages.
