This beautiful, distinctive property, thought to date back to the 1930’s with later additions, has recently undergone a full refurbishment by the current vendors. A great deal of thought and love has been given to the interiors, which have been designed in a palette of colours that bring a sense of fun while creating a home that is both unexpected and inviting. Although the proportions of the rooms are already very spacious and the square footage on offer at just under 2,900 square feet in total very generous, the large plot size does mean there is further scope for extension if desired, subject of course to the necessary permissions.
Outside, as with the inside, there is much to get excited about. To the rear is a hidden, park like garden, the size of which is rarely found so close to the centre of town, providing a haven for children, pets, gardeners and nature lovers alike. There is also a timber summerhouse and separate outbuilding, currently set up as a sauna and gym. This property also benefits from a gated driveway to the front and a double garage to the side. Internal viewing is highly recommended.
