Description Storrs Haven is one of the older properties fronting the lake. It has been enlarged over the years with a significant alteration in 2000 and has become a very comfortable family home in the same family ownership for over 40 years. It enjoys a very pleasant aspect over the water and with the enviable asset of a boating facility at the bottom of the garden.
The accommodation is set out over two floors and provides 4 pleasant reception rooms, 5 bedrooms with 1 en-suite and 1 family bathroom, together with a one bedroom cottage at the rear, which offers the versatility for guest accommodation, for family or incorporated back into the main house. The mature gardens of the property are an attractive feature and offer plenty of space if further enlargement of the building is required. The sloping lawns are bounded by well established shrubs and bushes and a pathway leads down to the lake shore, where there is a stone quay, a timber boathouse and jetty.
