This detached double-fronted Edwardian house is situated in the very heart of the town. Despite its central location it occupies a quiet setting and incorporates a generous garden together with a swimming pool, a garage and off-street parking. It was built in 1906 and its façade typifies that period. A rear extension together with comprehensive remodelling over the last 20 years has now delivered a sizeable five bedroom family home of great character and charm. The interior is well-presented and has generous principal rooms including an open plan family room that opens to the garden and a large principal bedroom suite on the first floor.
