THE HOUSE

Devercy is a charming and quirky property; approached from a gated 'no through' lane Devercy marries traditional period ham stone architecture, with a more modern extension and a large detached two storey Annexe, to create a perfect fusion of functionality and flexible living space. Originally converted from 3 ham stone workers cottages, the property was then extended to the rear in the 1970s and then more recently the detached annexe was added to create a large range of characterful accommodation.
