This character home for sale has been “hugely” rebuilt and dates back to the 18th century. 

The house, in Kiddicott, would originally have been built in the 1700s, but fell into disrepair over the years. 

In the 1990s, the detached property underwent a “huge” rebuild, retaining the character of the original property along with the period walls and chimney stack.

The agent said: “Originally, the house on this plot would have dated back to the 1700s and remained there until it fell into disrepair in the 1990s. 

“A huge rebuild in the late 1990s produced what you see today, and it’s fair to say that only some outside walls and the chimney stack remain of the original building. 

“That said, the character of the original was retained and you’d be forgiven for not realising on first glance that the majority of the property is much newer than you’d think.

“Great for a new owner, there’s lots of character throughout but with the ease of maintenance and creature comforts of modern living.

“The house occupies a tucked away position in the town and is somewhat of a rarity being detached in this location.”
