Historic home with annex

This historic Grade II listed building dates back to 1840 and retains many original features that enhance the modern improvements inside.

The Dolmen or ‘Druids Altar’, that stands at the front of the dwelling and gives the house its name, is believed to date back to the Neolithic period (4000 – 3600 BC) when the first farming communities were being established in the area.

Now though, this exceptionally spacious detached house offers a wealth of both well planned and adaptable living accommodation as well as a range of outbuildings, all of which afford prospective purchasers a variety of options - from family home with granny annex to Air B&B - and would equally suit those involved in equestrian pursuits or those needing space to work from home.

On the ground floor there are two principal recreation rooms – both with feature period fireplaces whilst the well appointed kitchen - with utility room off - is fitted with a good range of high and low level Beech units, island breakfast bar with granite work surfaces and original servant calling system.
