    About this property

    • The Old Tower is a stunning Victorian structure and has been continually updated and improved, and is today a stylish, unique and very comfortable home. Standing proudly and aesthetically pleasing to the eye, the Old Tower surveys its own grounds of lawns, terraces, and woodland walks; and beyond over neighbouring paddocks and farmland.

      Internally, the accommodation is light and airy with colour washed brick walls, heavy exposed beams and original porthole windows marry seamlessly with the quality finish and classic décor.

      The Old Tower is approached through brick pillars, past dense woodland and mature specimen trees which completely shield the property from the lane and provides privacy and seclusion.

      The house is set behind a deep gravelled driveway with a turning space to the side of a double garage. In addition, there is a further garage, accessed from the rear, providing additional parking.
