SELLERSINSIGHT "We had walked past the house on numerous occasions and we always thought that it looked very grand. The stained-glass windows are spectacular, as are the high skirting boards and ornate coving throughout, and the stonework is incredibly impressive. The room sizes and proportions are extremely generous, and the high ceilings add to the overall sense of space and light," say the vendors.
"The fully enclosed garden is a really good size and our children can safely play outside. It's quiet and peaceful and we can hear the birds singing all day long. The garden is also a great entertaining space where we've hosted lots of children's parties and BBQs. The large shed is perfect for outside storage and our children use the summer house as an extended play room where they enjoy games of table football. It's also a peaceful spot for us to relax with a glass of wine at the end of the day."
"We tend to spend most of our time in the kitchen / dining and living area which is a fabulous space all year round. We like to open the windows and doors in the summer and our children can easily wander in and out to the garden. It's also the ideal spot for a big Christmas tree, whilst the log burner provides a cosy warmth in the winter."
"The kitchen / dining and living space is fabulous. Bifold doors seamlessly blend the indoor and outdoor space and we regularly host dinner parties where we can easily accommodate 12 guests around the table."
"There is a lot of storage space which is ideal for a family and we will miss that when we move." "The oak staircase is magical, and we'll miss that, as well as the stained-glass windows. There's a great community feel here and easy access to the facilities which is why we want to stay in the area."
"The location has been perfect for us as everything we need is within walking distance, including shops and schools. There are a wide variety of restaurants and bars in the local area, as well as Castle Park which makes for a fun, family day out." Read less
