A Grade-II listed house in Warwick, which dates back to the 16th century, has been put up for sale.
The High Street building was formerly known as 'the house on the high pavement' and is currently on the market for £900,000 with agents Godfrey Payton.
The building, which is being sold with no chain involved, survived the great fire of Warwick which started in a thatched blacksmiths a few doors down.
The Elizabethan house boasts six bedrooms, two bathrooms and three reception rooms, as well as a rear garden.
There is also a separate annex accessed via a private entrance off Leycester Place.
The Old Surgery annex "has produced a healthy rental income for several decades" according to Godfrey Payton.
And on the main house, the brochure says: "On the ground floor the entrance hall has stairs to the first floor and then doors leading to the main reception rooms, the living room is double aspect with a delightful feature fireplace, the dining room to the front of the property facing the Lord Leycester also has a grand fireplace.
"The kitchen which is off the lobby is to the rear of the property overlooking the garden and with exposed beams leading to store rooms.
"A cloakroom off the entrance hall leads to a downstairs shower and WC. There is a study with a fireplace recess and a view of the garden. Located on the first floor there are six bedrooms, several with ornamental period fireplaces, the master bedroom with its views over the garden and Warwick Castle grounds, exposed beams and fireplace.
"There are two bathrooms, one is the family bathroom and the other an en-suite to the bedroom with oriel window offering lovely views over West Street. There are four further bedrooms.
"To the rear of the property there is a delightful walled garden with established trees and borders. An enclosed yard with garage accessed through a brick archway via Leycester Place provides off street parking for two vehicles."
