An attractive family home with painted brick elevations under a clay tiled roof. It is a major part of the former Hollycross, a large country house built circa 1897. It has been modified by the present owners to offer versatile accommodation whilst retaining charm and character.

The drawing room is elegant and double aspect with carved wood fireplace housing a log burner and a large window and a delightful windowseat overlooking the rear garden.

To the first floor the master bedroom has built-in cupboards and double doors opening to a pretty Juliet balcony overlooking the garden with distant views.
There is a double bedroom with built-in cupboards and
en suite Jack and Jill shower. There are a further two double bedrooms and a family bathroom which has been recently updated and has a free standing bath and spacious shower unit.
