With its handsome 18th century façade, potentially earlier core and later additions, Grade II Listed Beacon House makes for a fine family home set in the centre of a popular and well-located village.

There is a swimming pool and separate garage block with scope for improvement/conversion, subject to any necessary consents.

The house is surrounded by an expanse of well-maintained lawns with flowerbeds, mature trees and shrubs, and there is a patio area offering superb space for barbecues and al fresco dining.
