Vendor's thoughts: "The house has been a wonderful family home and we have all enjoyed living here immensely. We’ve loved having the opportunity to bring it back to life, filling it with friends and family and adding the fabulous garden. There is nothing better than watching the swallows swoop over our heads on a summer’s evening or a big family Christmas in this house. We are going to struggle to find another home to rival this one!"

In a nutshell: Perfect edge of village setting, beautifully laid out living space, stunning gardens.
