Adjacent to the property is Highgate House, a detached property which was bought by the current owners around 30 years ago. The property has been split with the ground floor being a joiners workshop with a pleasant one bedroom apartment above. Beneath the property is a vaulted store room with cobbled floor. This property could easily revert to a standalone house and would make a great investment holiday cottage, creating an additional income or ideal for dependant relative.
