No, we haven’t turned into estate agents, nor are we on any sort of commission but Avril and Keith who live in the village have decided to move to pastures new, so their home at Fernlea House, Main Street, Parwich is up for sale.
Knowing that several of our guests over the years have had more than half an eye on finding a nice house in these parts we suggested to Keith and Avril that we should put up a post on our blog and are more than happy to do so. They are hoping to sell their house privately.
They write: “This is a Grade 2 listed limestone 18th Century former Yeoman’s house in the Parwich Conservation Area. It has been thoroughly and tastefully refurbished and is in excellent condition.
One of the prettiest houses in the village, it is south facing and stands back 14 metres from the road behind a lovely garden. 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, kitchen, large utility room, cloakroom, dining room, and sitting room. Cellar with well!
THERE IS AN ATTACHED BARN (with development potential) containing a stable, tack room, garage, store room and a workshop upstairs measuring 38 feet by 18 feet. THERE IS A LARGE SEPARATE GARAGE with storeroom across the road from the house.
The property has been valued by local agents at £750,000 and is available at OIRO £735,000 FREEHOLD.

Who knows, we may end up as estate agents yet…!
