Message From The Seller

‘We’ve always felt at home here, first as school holiday escapees and then as full time residents for the past six years. It has been a house for all seasons – for snuggling down in front of the stove in the winter, for lunch in the yard and drinks under the wisteria in the summer. We love the combination of old and new – eighteenth-century floor tiles, three bathrooms, a downstairs loo and decent broadband. We created the garden from scratch, and it is a constant delight, with something beautiful to catch the eye throughout the year.’
