Owners insight "We were won over by the character of this Victorian house the moment we saw it. Having lived here for the previous four years, we know that this is a great home for the family and the annexe has offered many opportunities".
"We have enjoyed several barbecues with friends and family in the large south facing rear garden and have spent many evenings sat beside the pond, relaxing after work".
"The location has been such a convenience, this we will miss. Had we not stumbled across another house which we instantly fell in love with, we would not be selling. We will miss this house dearly, but we know that another family will enjoy this lovely home as much as we have".
