It is also south facing which means it benefits from what sun the English summer cares to beam down on us.

It is a quirky three bedroom house with many interesting features including a veranda which is a full 34 feet long and eight feet deep and a large sun lounge which heads off at a rightangle from the main property. A substantial home built in stone, it dates back to 1898 and thanks to the high walls that surround it offers a high degree of privacy.

It boasts a pleasant and large kitchen diner and a lounge which soaks up the light through a bay window.

A conservatory offers a spacious secondary reception room. It is made all the more attractive by the stained wood ceiling and exposed beams.
