Fore Place is a handsome period property in the centre of the village comprising a large beautifully presented four bedroom town house, a traditional shop and, next door, a one/two bedroom cottage in need of refurbishment. The main house has recently had a refurbished & insulated roof, new thermostore hot water and heating, rewired and replumbed. The cottage is currently adjoining but could easily revert to a totally separate dwelling. Just across the lane at the side is the village green which offers great amenity with lawns and a children's playpark enclosed by hedges. The property is set back from the road with a forecourt that can provide easy private parking for one vehicle. Other unrestricted public parking is available nearby. The adjoining cottage is to the rear and side of the property, on Church Path.
