AGENT’S COMMENT “This elegant Victorian property dates from around 1860 and has been very sympathetically extended, renovated and refurbished to an extremely high standard by the present owners. Retaining and restoring original features, the refurbishment has been completed with extremely fine attention to detail including a bespoke fitted kitchen, bespoke light switches and sockets and paints and wall paper sourced from manufacturers of traditional papers and paint. Set in a private position the house is approached over its own bridge leading to electric remote controlled security gates opening onto a shingled driveway leading to the detached garage and the front of the property. The gardens are established and well stocked and include gated access to a small paddock leading to mountain grazing at the rear of the property.

This is a beautiful family home which really does need to be viewed to be appreciated fully, call us now on 619966 and we will be delighted to show you around this rare property”.
