Our Vendor Says:- We love the fact that the house is surrounded by lovely countryside, yet it takes less than 5 minutes to drive into town. Our "local" is a ten minute walk away and in the summer we can sit by the canal and enjoy a lovely meal and a drink. This is a house to enjoy, whatever the season, with the beautiful walled garden in spring and summer and the inglenook fireplace and lovely log fire in winter. I really can't imagine a better place for two children to grow up in or, in my grown up son's words: "I don't think I could have asked a better home to grow up in. My fondest memories come from the 'forest' as we used to call it, which was perfect for me and my friends to play in when we were kids, and the stunning garden, a great site for a summer Bbq with family and friends. The house boasts a homely, yet, in many ways, a modern design. Having lived here for the last twelve years, I will always have significant memories of this house. Yes, I'll definitely miss this place."
With breathtaking views to both the front and rear, stunning walled gardens incorporating a wealth of versatile outbuildings, some providing additional accommodation and garaging and some with the potential for further development (subject to relevant planning). Superbly sheltered due to the position, this garden 'holds the sunshine' providing a haven on a sunny day.
