Summary Description

Dating back to 1605, a substantial and charming, tastefully extended four bedroom, two bathroom, stone built linked family home, carefully improved by the current owners who have lived there for the past 23 years. Being originally 3 cottages, it was altered into a family home during the last century. Although conveniently located near to the centre of Fulwood, Sheffield 10, it is very secluded, having generous gardens to 3 sides, which gives the impression of a more rural setting.
