Vendors' thoughts: "We loved the history of the house and that it had been converted by a retired member of the Gloucestershire Regiment (known affectionately as The Old Braggs). The founder of the regiment was a Colonel Braggs. We fell in love with the house on sight over 40 years ago, it being such a warm and welcoming house with remarkable views and a feeling of space. We have loved sharing our love of it with family and friends of all ages over the years."

In a nutshell: Views don't get much better than this! A welcoming home with so much charm.

Property Description
