THE PROPERTYFenwick Tower is a magnificent and historically significant Grade II Listed country house set within approximately 2.4 acres including formal gardens and paddocks in the midst of the delightful medieval settlement of Fenwick.

Modernisation has sought to reveal and enhance the many original features that this property boasts and reflect the age of the house and its stunning history creating a spacious and stylish family home.
