A fine village house with detached cottage. In all circa 6.25 acres.
Bullen Court is a handsome village property that has extensive and well presented accommodation and is positioned in a lovely setting. The house was originally a row of period cottages which were substantially added to in the 19th Century to create a house of impressive proportions. The property is built of stone and rendered elevations under a slate roof and has oil fired central heating and some secondary double glazing in most rooms. The property is not Listed and has been well maintained by the current owners who have enjoyed their time in this delightful family home.
