The agent describes the house was being ‘lovingly maintained and preserved’, which looks about right. It isn’t a time capsule by any stretch of the imagination, with updates throughout, not least when it comes to the bathrooms and kitchen area. But the house does still have originality at its core.

The angular wood and stone architecture itself of course, but beyond that, the floor to ceiling windows bringing the outside in, the open reception space, wood ceilings, feature fireplace and built-in units for example. All still in place. The rest is down to personal taste and decor choice.

A good amount of space too, which stretches to 4,604 sq. ft. and from what we can see, includes three bedrooms, three bathrooms and what looks like a fairly open reception space, including the kitchen and an office area. There’s a full basement in this place too.

The gardens are also a selling point. As we said, 5.6 acres, although you might have to pay extra if you want the lot. Spot that tennis court? That’s a nice extra to have. Well, as long as you like the odd game.
