The Property Believed to date back to the mid 1930s and constructed for the station commander serving at the former RAF North Coates. It is believed that during Winston Churchill's visit to the base in the battle of Britain he dined at the house. The property was built and designed to a grand Georgian style with the top floor originally being designed for servant quarters. The extensive accommodation has been designed with large, elegant rooms with the property positioned on the outskirts of the site to make the most of the open countryside views. The property has brick-faced insulated walls with a pitched timber roof construction covered in clay pantiles with the entire main roof covering being replaced only two years ago. Since the vendors ownership, they have renovated the property to a very high standard to provide contemporary accommodation with uPVC double-glazed windows and oil-fired central heating. Within the total grounds of approximately 1.1 acres (STS) are various outbuildings, together with separate vehicle entrance to the paddock creating great scope for equestrian, horticultural or leisure use (subject to any necessary consents).
