What We Think at the Zoe Napier Group
It’s with great pleasure we offer to the market this splendid two bedroom semi- detached character cottage which really is a hidden gem, located within the heart of the picturesque village of Aldham. The property boasts superb equestrian facilities, including 1.59 acres (stls), stabling and an extensive range of outbuildings that have great potential for a variety of uses (stp).
What the Owners Say
We purchased the property 19 years ago and have renovated the property and carried out extensive works externally. We have thoroughly enjoyed living here but without a need for the equestrian facilities the property offers, the time has come to move on.
