If we’re honest, not a lot has changed in the intervening years. Ok, a bit of the decor might have been tweaked and the odd layout changed. But by and large, the images we can see from the past listing don’t look a great deal different to the ones we are seeing now.

Not a bad thing as we loved this place first time round and still love it now. The single-storey property known as Silver Birch dates back to the 1960s. It was designed and built by an architect for his own use, although sadly we don’t have the name to hand. If you know, please do let us know, as we have been unable to find it with absolute certainty.

It has changed over time, perhaps a fairly recent upgrade, but one that has kept the look and feel of the place intact. Some nice original features too, including the beams, exposed brick and we would guess, that wonderful fireplace in the living room.

As for the space, that includes the double aspect sitting room with vaulted ceiling and the open brick fireplace. which works as a ‘natural divide’ through to the dining area. The kitchen is as contemporary as it gets, with long granite worktops, a breakfast bar provides you with plenty of prep space. On the corner of the breakfast bar and integrated appliances.
