Believed to date back to the 1600's, with later additions, the property is not listed and, with a fascinating history, it is understood to have started life as a bakery and ale house called The Crown.

Accessed from the kitchen is a triple glazed conservatory, overlooking and opening to the garden. There is a utility room and downstairs cloakroom.
