Formally known as Preston Farm and part of Princess Helena College, Dower House is a beautiful chequered red brick pattern property which has been cleverly converted into six luxury residences. Dating back to 1742 the house has an interesting past having long served the staff of the college throughout the 18th and 19th century and in 1910 was split into two three bedroom garden cottages and a separate two bedroom annexe. The property has also believed to have a connection with the royal family with HRH Duchess of Gloucester visiting and more interestingly refurbishing the house in 1992. Now Grade II Listed each property has sash windows, most have original features and all retain both individual and visitor parking, a bin-store and and secure gated entry.

Upon entry a welcoming hallway leads to the duel aspect lounge which has views both across the front lawn and onto the rear patio. The kitchen/dining room again expands the width of the building along with a utility room and downstairs cloakroom. The first floor serves two double bedrooms and a bathroom with the master bedroom enjoying a large en-suite. Two further double bedrooms and an additional bathroom are further complimented by a particularly spacious landing which would be served as a office/ study or play area.
