Horse Chestnut

Situated in the heart of the village of Aldford and set within the refurbished courtyard of former agricultural buildings, the development comprises four residential apartments at 1st floor level above three retail units on the ground floor.   

Horse Chestnut is a 2-bed apartment situated above the village shop.  The property offers spacious, modern accommodation which retains much of the character of the former building. Together with the high specification fixtures and fittings the apartment provides well-proportioned accommodation in the hub of the village.
