Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 3
A charming, deceptively spacious town house, with a wealth of original character features, set in the heart of this thriving historic market town which is surrounded by lovely countryside. The property has wide-ranging appeal and offers generous accommodation comprising 3 bedrooms, front reception/sitting room, to the rear an open plan living room with dining and study areas, 2 bath/shower rooms, kitchen, cellar and courtyard garden. Ideally suited as a private home, retail use, or a holiday let.


This Grade II listed 16th century building forms part of what is thought to have been a wealthy merchant's house. It is full of character and offers surprisingly deceptive space, the living accommodation being arranged over three floors. In addition it has a useful cellar which was part of the former Nag's Head public house in the 18th century. It also offers a pretty courtyard garden and a central position in this thriving, well-served town.
