“We have very happily lived in this wonderful home since 1999 and have many memories of enjoyment bringing the children up in this versatile home, which has grown with us as we have grown as a family. Entertaining has always been so much fun with a dining room that can hold us all and the garden room enabling us to continue into the garden in the spring and summer. It has now come to a time in our lives for us to downsize and due to the area being so perfect for the beaches, surrounding villages and towns, we are looking to remain local.”
Charming and with lots of character, this well presented and extended family home offers five good sized bedrooms, family bathroom and a ground floor shower /utility room, with a cosy, comfortable lounge, separate dining room, fitted kitchen and a stunning garden room with log burner overlooking the rear garden. The property also benefits from off road parking, driveway and a 17’ garage/workshop. This well-loved home is situated in a very popular location for schools, the local beaches and amenities. The present family have lived at the property since 1999 and have accommodated a large family here and have cared for the property retaining much of its original charm and atmosphere; with the family home benefitting from much natural light, as well as double glazing and gas heating.
