Not much is know about this house or the family that built it except the few pictures we were given by the previous owner, showing the original features like the beautiful windows, the windows in the roof & the chimneys all that have been removed & replaced.
Many of the features inside are still there from the ceiling roses and ornate coving and decorations to the beautiful oak wooden doors, window surrounds, skirtings and banisters.
So many beautiful features still there, yet so many replaced with newer versions and some gone altogether. I’m looking forward to lovingly updating, repairing & renovating this home over the years, trying to keep the older Edwardian style whilst modernising it throughout. Our main problem is heating this home, so wall insulation, floor insulation roof and windows are the first focus.
The biggest reason we were drawn to this home was the grounds. Approx 1/4 of an acre and the views are speculator all the way round the home
