Restored cottage overlooking valley


This wonderfully restored, brick and flint, Grade II* listed cottage is in an attractive setting in Binderton.

The property, in Binderton Lane, occupies an elevated position overlooking the Lavant Valley. From the front elevation it is apparent that this not an ordinary residence.

The unusual double-height, leaded light windows are a particular feature and the property has a notable chimney together with a tower which houses the semi-spiral staircase within.

Recently The Old Kitchens has been the subject of extensive renovation including works to the chimney, the tower and redecoration throughout.
