Parts of this characterful Grade II listed property dates back to the 15th century, with some later additions, mainly in the 17th and 18th centuries. It is steeped in history, and was formerly a pub, a school, a place for the manufacture of bespoke bricks and tiles, and also a doctors surgery. This traditional, detached family home enjoys some charming features such as beams, tiled floors, inglenook fireplaces, original oak floors, wood panelling in the dining room, a Rayburn, walled garden and a wood burner. The house is set just back from the main road which leads to the town, (there may be some road noise although the property is secondary glazed), and is conveniently located for local pubs and restaurants - the nearest only two minutes walk away, and a comprehensive range of independent shops, such as a butchers, bakery, greengrocers and more. Coppice Hill House benefits from a relaxing hot tub and sitting out area within lovely lawned, walled gardens.
