The town offers an excellent range of facilities with independent shops and chain stores, doctor and dentist surgeries, schooling for all ages and a variety of entertainment venues.

The property was built in 1910 and has been a much loved and enjoyed family home to our sellers for the last five years. During this time it has been exceedingly well maintained and improved. The wow factor rear extension provides an open plan space that is ideal for modern living, with more than enough space for family and friends to gather - where long term memories will be made - and the contemporary kitchen - from Howdens - is a chef's dream with plenty of soft closing units and a generous amount of oak work surfaces. The recently installed wood burner creates a cosy atmosphere and brings together old world charm and modern times. The adaptable accommodation allows for versatility - whether you prefer three/four bedrooms or two/three reception rooms, this property can cater to any changing needs. The windows to the front are sash style, in keeping with the property's origins and there are two original fireplaces in the front bedrooms.

Outside, the garden offers a tranquil outdoor retreat with a sunny and private aspect and for those who work from home or desire a creative space, the cabin in the garden provides the perfect setting for productivity and inspiration.
