The Grade II listed home, named Underhill Cottage, dates back to the 16th century and exudes a great deal of charm and character. Inside, the property is beautifully presented and offers a good mix of period features and modern additions.

Inside, the large sitting room is a cosy living space with exposed beams, painted stone walls, and an inglenook fireplace with a wood burner. The dining room is equally charming, while the kitchen has a classic look with cream-coloured units, wooden worktops, exposed beams and painted stone walls. The ground floor is completed with a family room, a music room and a utility.
