What We Think at The Zoe Napier Group

If you require space and character, then this wonderful much loved family home offers it in abundance, with the added benefit of a large beautifully designed annexe, which overlooks the charming garden and terraces. The mature gardens are a fabulous wildlife haven.  We think this would make a perfect home for all the family, including the grandparents!

What the Sellers Says

It’s now time for us to move on and entrust another family with all that our beautiful home has to offer.  Our family have really enjoyed living here over the years and we have created many precious memories. With a ‘Shed Quarters’ at the bottom of the garden it makes for a delightful place to work from home. Our home has many beautiful features and is perfect for family gatherings.

History & Background

A home with elegant proportions and stunning features throughout.  The high ceilings, cornicing, moulded arches, ceiling roses, and bay and sash windows with feature pane glass are striking and create a wonderful ambience and feeling of grandeur.  The house itself is Edwardian and dates to 1904, with impressive chimneys, beautiful red brickwork and pretty mock-Tudor cladding gable ends makes for an attractive exterior.

The large annexe is situated to the side/back of the main property, with its own front door leading to a long hallway and linked by a shared utility room to the main house.  The recently built annexe is beautifully designed and is light and airy, allowing for independent living, and spacious rooms with access to private terraces, overlooking the established garden.  The gardens are of particular note with a stunning array of specimen plants, an ancient Walnut tree, wildlife pond, and lawned areas.
