During this time they have re-configured the property and transformed it into a contemporary home that will certainly bring a smile to many potential buyers. The property offers open plan living with the main seating area benefiting from a wood burner, the kitchen area is fitted with a range of stylish gloss finished soft closing units and some integrated appliances plus a downstairs shower room has been created.
