The Armada House commands an edge of the village position over looking the village green and backing onto open countryside.
The house is Grade II listed and believed to date from the late 16th Century as indicated by the weathered stone tablet in moulded frame inscribed with the date 1588, although there have been later additions. There is evidence to suggest that the South wing is medieval owing to the Cruck' truss construction to the roof and the remains of a fireplace and chimney within the southern gable.
Over the last few years the house has undergone a comprehensive refurbishment and restoration programme creating a modern home within an old shell. This sympathetically modern house is quite unique and, due to it's quality of accommodation and finishes, sets itself apart from so many of today's period houses.
Period features include open fireplaces with ornate stone surrounds and mantels, exposed timbers, mullion windows with leaded lights, square hoods, window seats, deep window boards, oak internal doors, quarry tiled and stone floors, 3 half dormers have coped gables with kneelers.
As a result modern living combines extremely well with the period's age and charm.
