Due to its standing within the hamlet, Auckland House is Grade II Listed and occupies a unique position overlooking the ford. The property is believed to have origins dating back to the early 16th Century with a later addition dating back to 1826 - formerly used for hop drying. Auckland House has an impressive display of period features including a wealth of exposed timbers, studwork and mullion window. The vendors have been resident for nearly 25 years and have improved the property throughout including the addition of a double storey extension in 2006. This unique home now offers substantial accommodation and is presented to the highest of standards. The property is further enhanced by a garage and a detached, recently renovated flint outbuilding, currently used as a home office/garden room. The rear gardens are a sheer delight being south/south west facing and are possibly one of the key selling features of Auckland House. The grounds are believed to measure 0.75 acres in total and incorporate a wild garden, formal gardens, vegetable garden and all-encompassing idyllic countryside views.
