The Property

The majority of the windows are UPVC double glazed and the original feeling of the Victorian era has been blended into the modern-day living. There are maple floors and joinery to the ground floor. There are high vaulted ceilings throughout and a wealth of character and period features with large picture windows making it a particularly light and versatile house. A viewing is recommended.
