Tucked away on a corner plot on the lower side of Lawn Drive with a lovely outlook towards the surrounding countryside and woodland, this wonderful family home has a lot to offer. This area of Lawn Drive was developed in the early 1990’s and has matured well since, becoming a popular part of town to call home.

Outside there are gardens front and rear with a large paved terrace off the rear of the house. The corner plot gives the property a high degree of privacy, and the south facing rear garden gets the best of the sun throughout the day.

Doors lead from here to the reception rooms and stairs with varnished wooden spindles and banister rise to the first floor. The cloakroom/WC is accessed off the hallway by the front door.
The sitting room is of generous proportions with a dual aspect and runs the entire length of the house with a sliding patio door opening to the rear sun terrace.
