Here is our top pick for the week:

Five-bedroom detached period house with stunning views in Wells Road, Draycott, offered for sale by Charles Barnard Estate Agents.

Rock House is a period property enjoying wonderful, uninterrupted views at the front. This detached family home dates back to 1832 and is within walking distance of the local village store and post office.

In need of modernisation in certain areas, there are plans to increase the size of the accommodation. The layout of this versatile home also gives it the option of an income.

The current accommodation includes a living room, dining room and a kitchen breakfast room. There are then five bedrooms and three bathrooms over two further floors.
