This fine well-appointed and versatile family home has been transformed by the current owners who have created a truly exceptional space ideal for modern family living and entertaining.

On the ground floor there is a spacious hall, leading to two south facing reception rooms, both of which open onto a traditional covered veranda that extends to the side and front of the house. The sitting room benefits from an original stone fireplace with multi-fuel stove and original curved ceiling.

The south facing kitchen family room is the hub of house. An extensive space blending a mixture of materials; exposed brickwork and steel beams, solid games court wood floor and carpeted sitting area with a bioethanol fire.
