heart of the Conservation village of Crondall, Grade II listed,
being one of the eleven original houses of Crondall dating back
to the 15th Century. The accommodation is of brick and oak

burner and doors to the terrace, dining room with exposed brick
floor and garden room with slate flooring benefiting from under
