An award winning house. Few properties can claim such an honour but Stone Cottage is one of them. On 11 May 2012 LABC Building Excellence Awards gave the honour of best individual dwelling to Stone Cottage and its renowned building expert owner Mr Danny Lees. The award was given to recognise the high standard of construction and workmanship that went into the creation of this amazing detached house and upon internal and external inspection prospective purchasers will soon recognise why the property so readily won such glowing plaudits.
