DESCRIPTION Believed to have been constructed in the 1890's, Fern Villa is a charming brick built semi-detached property retaining many of its original period features. The dining room, with brick-built period fireplace and bread oven is particularly welcoming and the cosy sitting room is typical of a property from this era. The ground floor also comprises kitchen, garden room, cloakroom and utility with adjoining workshop. To the first floor there are four bedrooms and a separate bathroom. Outside to both front and rear are well maintained enclosed gardens and opposite the front gate is a detached garage with off-road parking to the front.
