About this property

TENURE: Freehold

The Croft is a substantial and unique family home that has been in the same family for over 60 years. Although rumoured to date back to the 16th century and believed to have originally been a Coaching Inn called "The Bear", the first reference found to the house is on a tithe map of 1848. A two storey wing was added in the early 1900s. The accommodation comprises 5/6 bedrooms, 4/5 reception rooms, including the impressive "Big Lounge", fitted kitchen and separate breakfast room and pantry, downstairs WC, two en-suite bathrooms and a separate shower room and WC. A lovely feature of this well known local home is the balcony adorned with teddy bears keeping a watchful eye! Outside there is a mature garden extending to approximately quarter of an acre along with a double garage with attached garden and solid fuel store. Some modernisation is required. We believe the charm and welcoming feel of this rarely available family home can only be experienced by an internal viewing.
