Our clients purchased the property during the mid 1990s and have carried out extensive refurbishment works since then. A 3 storey extension was added to the side to create a stunning dining kitchen, principal bedroom and a large home working space beneath the house. We anticipate that buyers may wish to carry out further works to meet their own tastes and demands.
