A quirky, historic, four-bedroom detached house in a large plot of about 1.82 acres, with numerous outbuildings, swimming pool, orchard and paddock, in a sought-after village in Weston.

Offering a perfect slice of rural living, the extended homestead dates back to 1820 and is packed with period character and charm, and has potential to be improved and extended.
