Additional Information

THE OWNERS PERSPECTIVE...
"We as a family have lived in The Old Manse for 23 years. It has been our three grown up children's only home, so we have all made wonderful memories here.

The spacious garden was ideal for an active family. We found the location perfect, as the school run was only 10 minutes!

The main house was extended in 2008 to include the Garden Room, Double garage & Games Room.

We have no doubt the next family will enjoy all aspects of the house as we have"
