The property is situated down a pedestrian path and is within easy reach of all the town's facilities, including the mainline train station.

This delightful home marries old world charm to modern day living and will certainly get the seal of approval from potential buyers, as it will satisfy many needs. The property retains character features, such as high ceilings, picture rails, fabulous sash windows, a beautiful fireplace in the sitting room and some exposed floorboards.
