Thought to have dated back to the late 1600's is this truly magnificent and unlisted thatched residence, situated in a complete private and tranquil one acre plot. Originally formed as two workers cottages as part of the Breamore Estate, the larger of the two being host to the gamekeeper in the 20th century. Now converted into one dwelling; the property is finished with unrivalled joinery and craftsmanship throughout and benefits from superb ceiling heights to both floors.
