It is believed that the property began life as a coach house and so has a wealth of beautiful original features that combine to give the home great character and charm. When the current owners purchased the property the interior was dated and the house was generally in
need of TLC, so over the years they have extended and renovated
the house, transforming it into the immaculately presented family
home it is today.
