DESCRIPTION Silver Birches is one of the most prestigious properties in the area, lying in what is considered one of the most sought after locations of the town. The property was originally constructed in 1937 and has been lovingly restored, extended and improved by the current owners to offer substantial, tasteful, well laid out living accommodation set in stunning grounds with outstanding views over open countryside. The internal accommodation is well laid out to make the most of the attractive garden and the outlook to the rear. There is a raised outdoor eating/entertaining area which is accessed from the rear garden by illuminated steps or from the Garden Room or Living Room. Internally, the spacious accommodation enjoys unusually high ceilings being 2.67m from the floor.
