DESCRIPTION Laverton Hall is a delightful village home dating back approximately 400 years and offers accommodation with fabulous proportions which has been in the same family for numerous generations. The property retains many original features throughout and as such has a wonderful feel the moment that you enter the front door – however it would now benefit from updating and improvement works to reach its full potential.
