Built by Colonel Batt between October 1907 and April 1908, the family crest remains over the front door, in the form of a bat! See if you can spot it. Local materials and labour was used from Gresham Estate and the bricks were all baked in a kiln on the estate.
Colonel Batt generated his own electricity, a very impressive feat at the time! This served the property for many years, until it was replaced by an eco-friendly biomass boiler to ensure oodles of hot water and heating.
The present owner bought the property in the 1980s and it has been a happy family home since then, with a stunning estate to enjoy. Between 2017 and 2018, the family performed extensive renovations, and the property is now the best of both worlds: Edwardian architecture, with all the mod cons!
