Steps (18) and a gently sloping path lead through the garden to the front door.

Inside, thoughtfully renovated, refurbished and made welcoming.

From the hall, a snug with original parquet flooring and TV, through to large, beautifully fitted kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, microwave, American-style fridge-freezer, electric oven/gas hob, TV) with views from bi-fold French windows to garden and the town beyond.
