It has the spacious rooms, high ceilings and many traditional features that come with period homes, a garden that is an absolute credit to our client and a result of a labour of love over the decades of their occupation. It has lovely views for miles over the open fields to the rear of the property, off-street parking for several cars, and a detached garage which is currently arranged as a single with workshop area, however was designed to be easily changed to a double garage if required.
