Selling agents Chapman Stickels describe Dukes Hall as “surely one of the most remarkable conversions in the area for many years”.

The original properties, which were the village hall and a Grade II listed cottage, had fallen into disrepair but after careful redevelopment, they’ve now been given a new lease of life as a stylish and adaptable home, set back from the road and right at the centre of the village.

The property is for sale at a guide price of £825,000 and combines the old with the new, offering a versatile layout and plenty of flexibility.

The real highlight of the home is the vaulted living room at the centre, which features an open fireplace, oak floor and eye-catching ‘wagon wheel’ light fitting. In the past, this room was used for village functions, including wedding parties and family gatherings, and, due to its scale, it’s now become an exceptional space to entertain in private.
