We also have a few words from the agent too, who mentions that this place ‘has been restored’. The image certainly back that up, with the exterior showing all those beams and the woodwork in fine shape. The kitchen is pretty special too, fitting in well and we would guess, being at least partly original to the property.

In fact, there seems to be quite a lot of originality about this place, not least when it comes to the fitted storage and the woodwork, possibly some light fittings too and maybe even the fireplace and the bathrooms. The agent also points out that the cork flooring is original and in ‘perfect condition’ too. If you want a ‘time capsule’, this might well fit the bill.

The space totals around 2,115 sq. ft. and includes three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Reception space looks extensive too. There are still rooms that could do with a ‘lift’ to take it to the next level, but as it stands, this is still a house with so much potential and style.
