Description

A deceptively spacious attached house understood to have been built in 1992 in keeping with the adjoining impressive Victorian country mansion that was skilfully converted at the same time into mainly prestigious apartments.
Birch Grove has many fine features blending a period feel with contemporary including coved ceilings, part panelled walls, sealed unit double glazing, well appointed kitchen as well as a south facing balcony to the master bedroom. There are en suite shower rooms to two of the bedrooms with potential for the other as well (see below) and a through sitting room and dining room with a total length of nearly 30' ideal for entertaining. The location as described below is quite outstanding and is another of the many selling points.
