It is of rendered timber framed elevations under a mainly plain tiled roof with substantial red brick chimneys. The property has not been significantly updated for many years and now offers a fantastic opportunity to create an exceptional family home.
The property offers many outstanding period features but in particular the exposed brick fireplace to the sitting room, moulded beams to the dining room and kitchen and a mullion window to bedroom 2. The main timber frame, wall studs and ceiling braces are visible throughout the property.
Since the early 1960s part of the property has been known as 'Abington Pottery' and part time sales have taken place from the property. The current planning status of the property is that it is partially of commercial use.
