“Upon entering the home, you will notice that every room has a story to tell, as well as the current owner's attention to detail.

The description adds: "The top floor of the property has another two bedrooms and has the advantage of increased privacy due to its proximity in relation to the rest of the house.

"Both bedrooms are of a sufficient size to be able to fit a bed and an abundance of bedroom furniture but would also make a suitable office space. You will be impressed by the volume of storage space created by the eaves."
