A beautiful and most unusual semi-detached house situated in a rural location and yet just a 5 minute drive (1.3 miles) from the nearest shop.

The rooms are all generous – the accommodation comprising three double bedrooms, one with en suite shower room, family bathroom, a stunning hallway and landing with a beautiful bespoke stair case, lounge with pretty countryside views, large kitchen/dining room fitted with solid wood hand-made units and the bonus of an additional room providing space for formal dining, studio or workplace.
