A stunning Edwardian property with timeless appeal proudly set amongst approximately a 1/4 of an acre of lush gardens and established trees/bushes.

Timeless in its opulence and generous proportions the home, with over 9000 square feet of living area, offers a superb and perfect family accommodation in magnificent surroundings, ensuring a private haven and a cherished lifestyle. Individual rooms with their high skirting boards, elevated and craftsman moulded ceilings, adorned with cornice borders with wide doorways and doors complete with individual top inset leaded windows give the feeling of a grand and spacious living.
