This stunning three storey coach house is situated within a courtyard setting surrounded by eight acres of mature wooded grounds and approached over a 170 woodland driveway that has a superb display of Spring blossom.

Introduction

Constructed in 1999, the property has been improved by the current owner and now offers exceptional accommodation that will appeal to the discerning purchaser seeking a property of the highest calibre in a secure gated development. Historically, the original main house opposite was built in 1913 for one of the sons of the local prominent Fleming family, when he didn't return from WW1 it was donated to the Red Cross in his memory and became a convalescent home. It has since been redeveloped to provide an impressive range of apartments and only four coach houses. This particular property is the finest and largest at 2,700 square feet, boasting the most enviable position within the courtyard.
