Prospect House is a particularly special property that amongst many of the features it boasts, includes its fascinating cruck framed structure which is evident in various parts of the house. The property is believed to date back to the 17th Century where this ancient form of long house was used to create a single dwelling where half the property would be occupied by the owner and the other half by the animals. Since then Prospect House has undergone significant renovations; particularly in the 1970's. However more recently it has been modernised to offer accommodation over two floors with a good sized entrance hall that branches off to three reception rooms and a fitted kitchen. Upstairs there is a master bedroom with en suite bathroom, two further bedrooms with access through one to get to a spacious occasional bedroom or study and all served by the house bathroom. There is an attached garage providing off street parking with adjoining utility and store rooms.

To the rear of Prospect House there are two sizeable yet private well stocked, Southerly facing gardens. These are separated by an attractive stone wall yet linked with a wrought iron gate. The smaller of the two is overlooked by the kitchen window and has, in the past, been used as a kitchen garden to grow herbs and vegetables. The gardens also benefit of a couple of stone outhouses which in their own right are useful for storage but might also offer a potential to convert into a work from home office (subject to planning).
