Property description

Garden House was built about 20 years ago and was designed by an award winning local architect. It is spacious and bright with lots of large windows and patio doors allowing both the rural views and lots of natural light. The accommodation is quite flexible, currently five bedrooms and a studio, whilst downstairs there is a sunny glazed verandah style entrance hall, a large sitting room with a fireplace and a dining room connecting to the large kitchen/breakfast room plus a walk in larder and a utility room. The garden is south and west facing with views to beautiful Meldon Hill. Fowlers heartily recommend viewing.
