Our vendor says… We are sad to sell, we have loved bringing up our children here, but it's time for someone else to enjoy the house as much as we have.  We bought the property because of the spacious and versatile accommodation with plenty of room for everyone, the quiet location and the great views - it has been a labour of love.  We have made lots of improvements to the house, as well as building the annexe and garage which served as my home office.  The private garden and has been wonderful for family bbq's and entertaining friends in the summer.
