paved balcony with beautiful view of historic bridge

Fantastic views from the elevated veranda

Formerly used for pumping water to the farm, it came complete with a 20m deep well that had been mostly hidden under ivy for many years.

Now a private house, this traditional detached family home is impressive externally and inviting internally.
