The Property

Dating from the 14th century, Birds Cottage is the oldest surviving house in the whole of the city and was built using a structure known as a cruck arch. This is a rare form of construction and only 130 such structures exist in England and Wales. Inside, the property would have originally been completely open. The Bird family - who lived there from around 1742 until the mid-20th century - were carpenters and the property has a yard area which still has a sawpit.

Property Highlights

The property has original features which include exposed beam ceilings and open fireplaces. The kitchen has a range of base units with marble and laminate work surfaces, a built-in range cooker and access to a walk-in pantry. The tiled floor continues into the dining hall which has an open fireplace, as does the sitting room and further reception room/bedrom five. On the first floor are four bedrooms - with the master having an en suite bathroom - and a family bathroom. The property is monitored by CCTV .
