It’s not often I am totally bowled over by a house but I am proud to admit I am totally smitten with this fabulous property. The owners have poured their heart and souls into the careful, total renovation of this historically important house. This includes adding a completely sympathetic two storey extension to the rear, with careful details even down to matching the windows and fitting cast iron rain water goods. Whilst many period houses are a compromise on modern living, this one seamlessly blends the two with bright, double aspect rooms. I can just imagine sitting enjoying the last of the day’s sun on that wonderful verandah!
I can’t wait to start showing people around – just to see if they have the same reaction as me (I really didn’t want to leave).
The house is set conveniently close to the town centre yet very tucked away within its own large, level lawned gardens which extend to all sides. There is a sunny stone terrace, gazebo covered hot tub and plenty of parking. A large, newly built detached garage has an integral store and a fabulous games/cinema room above. WE HAVE ALL FALLEN HEAD-OVER-HEELS FOR THIS UTTERLY UNIQUE HOUSE!
