Coney Weston House is a superb village home, with an extensive range of outbuildings, set in the middle of approximately ten acres of mature parkland.

The house is a substantial, Grade II listed former farm - latterly the dower house to Coney Weston Hall.

The house dates from the early 17th Century with later additions over the centuries.

It is part timber-framed with attractive red brick and rendered exteriors and an elegant `gentrified’ Georgian reception.

There is also great family living space making it a fine home for childhood days.

There are many original period character features and it has been well maintained by the current owners, yet there is still scope for further updating.

The grounds and outbuildings are a particular feature, providing plenty of scope for private facilities - ideal for those with equestrian interests or perhaps a classic car collection.
