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.
