This enchanting detached period house has been considerably improved by the current owners and subsequently, lovingly maintained.

The accommodation comprises an entrance vestibule opening to a welcoming hallway with original encaustic tiled floor, there are two light and airy reception rooms, each with impressive fireplaces, a generous kitchen/breakfast room with an original dresser and comprehensive kitchen installation, conservatory uniting the house with the garden and a cloakroom. On the first floor are three bedrooms, two doubles and a single as well as very smart bathroom.

There are shallow gardens to the front and side but to the rear there is a very manageable, pretty garden which has been designed for relative ease of maintenance and provides a delightful environment for alfresco dining and entertaining. At the far end of the garden, accessed from Twiss Grove is a garage and driveway providing off street parking.
