Situated within a peaceful rural location with one of its boundaries abutting National Trust land is Linden Lea. Conceived by local architect Barry Briscoe approximately 25 years ago and now offered for sale for only the second time since construction. The property was built with the use of local amenities such as slate and granite and has been mixed with a selection of high quality wood such as Iroco, Chestnut and Beech to give a modern yet traditional feel. The flexible accommodation comprises of two double bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen/breakfast room and sun room on the ground floor. On the first floor there are two further bedrooms, one of which is ensuite and the sitting room which is of a unique design with a turret in a hexagonal shape and enjoying views across the valley.
