Introducing Birds Cottage to the market for the first time in nearly three decades of private ownership.

Located in the sought-after Parish of Milton Keynes Village and tucked away at the end of a tranquil lane is this historic family home. This stunning cottage is Grade Two Star listed building and set in approximately half an acre, the cottage overlooks a delightful garden and offers an abundance of history and character dating back to the 13th century. The house is also believed to be the oldest secular property in the borough and in its earlier years could have been a manor.

Complementing the cottage is a 146 square metre beautiful detached oak framed barn, crafted to a superior standard and housing a double garage, cellar and a mezzanine floor.

This charming cottage combines all the character expected from a property dating back to the 13th Century. Of considerable historical interest is the Cruck base arch, a traditional medieval wood frame construction. The music room fireplace features an arcade plate listing some of the Bird family names, forever carved into the stonework. The Bird family made it their home in the early 18th Century and lived and worked there until approximately the mid 1980`s.
