This property has only come to the market due to the current owners having seen another property that they are interested in. They had no initial intention to move and have been renovating this beautiful family home since 2016. It is important to note that they have been very happy in their home and are only looking to move due to a potential opportunity to upsize.
The current owners have extended to the rear of the property and converted the loft creating a fantastic array of accommodation to suit families or those just wishing for space. There are solar panels on the roof that are owned by the property and new carpets were installed throughout approximately two and a half years ago.
