Message From The Seller

We have enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the area and  in addition the friendly neighbours and involvement in community events.  The house is particularly well suited to entertaining with the double doors opening from the sitting room through to the dining room.  Having two kitchens allows family and guests to make themselves at home.
