Built in 1769 by Sir John Vanhattem as an ‘Eye Catcher’ to house his fossil and ammonite collection (many of which are visible and worked into the limestone and red brick fabric of the building) the property offers a wonderful blend of history and modern convenience. Presenting a rare opportunity to purchase a fascinating Grade II Listed folly which has been fully renovated and meticulously restored by the current owners to now provide a remarkable home laid out over 3 octagonal floors.
Entering the property you are welcomed by an abundance of charm and character with exposed stone and brickwork internal walls providing an impressive and inspiring atmosphere. Following the stairs down from the entrance hall, the kitchen breakfast room offers high ceilings, exposed oak timbers, and under floor heating leading through to the utility.
Modern fittings and solid wood work surfaces abound, with a charming gas range cooker set into the fireplace making a pleasant feature. Rising to the first floor, the sitting room is quite a delight, enjoying views from almost every angle, high ceilings, oak beams and flooring along with a feature fire place.
In addition there is a glazed door which leads to the rear terrace and steps down to the garden. The second floor offers two double bedrooms, both ensuite and benefits from under floor heating. The stairs rise further to a roof top terrace which boasts 360 views of the surrounding countryside.
