The property was built around 1920 and has had later additions to make for a wonderful, exceptionally spacious family home. The entrance porch is flooded with natural light and opens to the entrance hall where a wide central staircase leads to the first floor. The almost 34 foot, triple aspect living room has French doors and full height glazed side panels which brings the beauty of the garden in.
