VENDORS COMMENTS

This has been a family home for thirty years. Over this time it has provided a peaceful and welcoming setting for friends and relatives who have enjoyed the stunning views and the several well known public foot paths and bridle ways leading from the house. Many summers have been spent having meals alfresco sat on the patio overlooking the brook or around the Summerhouse/ Studio office, amongst the fruit trees. The cottage garden has been planted with an assortment of perennials, adding a colourful back drop to the brook and patio area. The large garden, approached via a decked seating area, has hosted many happy gatherings, football matches and badminton events as the family grew up. The house is set on a small cul-de-sac and the neighbours are friendly and sociable, many like myself are the original owners.
