Quince Corner is believed to date back to the 17th Century. Grade II Listed and built of stone under a newly thatched roof it remains a wealth of period features which include; flagstone flooring, exposed beams, open local stone fireplaces and lead lined windows.

From here you have access to the kitchen with hand-made base and eye level units, granite and stone work surfaces, 3 oven electric ‘Total Control’ Aga, vaulted ceiling, oak floorboards and wood burner. There is ample room for a dining table. Adjoining is the utility room which gives access to the garage and door onto the rear. The drawing room is a warm room with oak flooring and open Hornton Stone fireplace with exposed stone surround. Continuing down the hall and into the sitting room, a brick room with double aspect windows and matching stone fireplace, wood burning stove and oak flooring. Neatly tucked behind and under the stairs is a reading area or study equipped with built in shelving and desk. The dining room is of good proportions and laid with beautiful and sizable flagstones. A window seat is ideal for sitting back and enjoying the garden whilst an attractive feature fireplace with wrought iron surround takes centre stage. Further on this floor is a cloakroom with w/c and a two chambered cellar ideal for wine storage.
The first floor can be accessed via two staircases. Here you have four bedrooms all of good proportions, with the principal bedroom benefitting from built in wardrobes. A modern family bathroom with white bath suite, sizable shower and sink pedestal with stone surface.
