    Sympathetically modernised and improved providing sophisticated and well-appointed living. This is arguably the best house in the village. It is really interesting to note that, when I have visited, there is a real sense of peace and quiet here, which is unusual given the thriving nature of the village. So well worth stepping into this rare oasis.
