Vendor's thoughts: "We have loved living in Greenview Cottage and will savour fond memories of its warm and welcoming feel. It offers a rare combination of dreamy countryside charm whilst also being practical, versatile and secure. Our family have enjoyed the house as a restorative haven from weekdays in London - a setting for cosy cocooning, convivial gatherings and many treasured moments for our children. The house is unusually spacious, light and airy for a cottage and would happily suit different living arrangements. It has most definitely felt like a special home to us."
