VENDOR INSIGHT "When searching for this property I was looking for a solid, traditional family home, which I felt this house offered me. Having viewed the property and confirmed this I immediately fell in love with the woodburning stoves in the two main reception rooms and still enjoy the warmth they provide on a cold winters evening."

"Having been brought up in the Babbacombe area and attended both the local primary & secondary schools I realised the convenience and importance of the location and only focused my search in this area.
