Owners View

"Living in this house has been a true pleasure. It lends itself perfectly to being a fun, social, house to live in due to it s size and light aspect - it seems to generate it s own good feel . Birchanger as a Village is also very sociable if you want it to be. It generates a friendly, warm atmosphere and is also very convenient to local amenities. There are numerous country walks on our doorstep.

Our only reason for moving is that we now wish to downsize and we leave here reluctantly with excellent memories of a wonderful family home.
