The Ferns is an impressive double fronted family home which in 1830 was known as The Dog and Partridge Brew House. The property is filled with character features and provides very spacious, flexible accommodation suitable for modern family and multi-generational living. The Ferns benefits from a detached Coach House, large private rear garden and electric gated driving providing parking for several vehicles. The Coach House has two floors and is currently used as a garage and home office/studio and would alternatively lend itself to annex accommodation/art studio/Air B and B ( subject to planning consent). The current owners have extended, re-configured and refurbished their home to a high standard giving consideration to the quality of fixtures and fittings and natural light. Recent works include: sash windows, radiators, insulation, breakfast/dining kitchen, laundry, bespoke Thomas Crapper bathroom and new front door.
