Move straight in to this six bedroom detached family house. It is set back from the road with a generous lawned area and car parking spaces at the front and a double car port. There is a pretty walled garden at the back, a sun trap, with an Italian paved terrace, decking area and artificial grass ideal for dogs. A secret garden is to be found through an archway to the right of the front door, ideal for that evening glass of wine, and a sunken garden which is south facing.
Once inside this immaculate home it immediately becomes apparent that not only is the standard of finish superb but the layout makes it ideal for any growing family. Built in 1800 in the reign of George 111, many of the original features have been retained including the feature windows with 200 year old panes of glass, stripped pine floors, elegant doors and Georgian skirtings and architraves.
