Property Description

It really is rare to find such a substantial and imposing home on the local market. Encompassing nearly 9,000 sq ft of space and sitting on a site of over 2 acres, this superb home exudes the charm and sophistication of a bygone age. The property has been renovated by the current owners but there are plans approved to further develop the house and the unique setting, size and feel means any further works undertaken would be wholly worthwhile and justified. Although an oft-abused cliche, this truly is a home that needs to be seen to be appreciated. More details of the planning permissions are available from our office, including permission to extend externally and into the roof, whilst also providing for a swimming pool and a five car garage.
