A sophisticated home with humble roots

A view to Fulford Golf Course and a heated swimming pool are among the valuable selling points of The Old Tannery near Wythall.

Appropriately located off Tanners Lane, the evolved family home really was once a tannery building, much changed and extended since.

It has been totally improved and modernised to create an impressive, modern family home with plenty of added character – exposed timbers and brickwork.

The five bedroom house has no fewer than four with en suite facilities plus a further house bathroom for good measure.
