This classic Edwardian property has been in the same occupancy for over 20 years and been extended by the present owners in 2006. The superb part vaulted family/breakfast room is an excellent addition and ideal for modern family life, together with the elegant formal reception rooms. Also of note is the wonderful, established west facing gardens which provide a high degree of privacy.
