What the Owners Say
I fell in love with the design, quality and the bright and spacious feel of the home and it functions so well for me, and for when I have family and friends over. The established garden is easy to maintain, but most importantly provides a haven of privacy. This has been the perfect downsizing home, and I shall miss the peace and tranquillity and overall lifestyle that it offers.
