The origin of its name lies in the fact that this spacious residence was once three buildings that can be traced back to the 1650s. Over the years extensions have been added and the present owners have made their own renovations and improvements including a number of new timber framed windows. There are two buildings on the stunning 4.461 acre plot – the principal house and The Alms Cottage. In spite of the changes there is still plenty of evidence of the property’s great age with attractive fireplaces and exposed timbers.
