The Malt House is situated within an easy walk of the town centre and is conveniently placed for amenities and domestic requirements, with excellent commuter road and rail links.
The Malt House
Originating from the 1800's, this substantial and gracious house has been extended to incorporate the outbuildings providing flexible living space and an annexe. Spacious bedrooms with good storage space from fitted wardrobes. The property retains much period character but requires some modernisation. A majestic staircase leads to a galleried landing with a glass lantern providing copious light to this area. The property requires updating but has huge potential for enlightened buyers. The Malt House is attached on one edge to a neighbouring building.
