With four reception rooms and six bedrooms, there is ample space for a family to live and grow and to potentially create annexe/auxiliary accommodation if required. Inside, the current owners, have extended and updated the property to provide well balanced living and bedroom accommodation without compromising the traditional character of this 1930's home. The property has been completed to an exceptional specification with a complete replumb and rewire, new fuse boards with smart meters, hard-wired 5-amp lighting system, hive remote control thermostats, motion sensor security lights and cameras, hard-wired internet along with underfloor heating and hard-wired speakers to the kitchen and open plan living space.
