This former rectory in Ingham has been the home of Dr and Mrs Brian Hughes for more than 20 years. ‘It’s been a wonderful family home. Unfortunately, we delayed moving last year due to our daughter’s wedding and the market has dropped, so we’ve agreed to a major price reduction from £1.85 million.’

Grade II listed. 7 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, 4 reception rooms, flower arranger’s garden, hard tennis court. £1.35m. Bedfords (01284 769999).
