Owner's note We have happily lived in this warm family home for 35 years and have extended and remodelled it as our life circumstances have changed. It is an extremely convivial, comfortable, and flexible house which easily accommodates a large family. Due to its open plan, easy flow layout and private position, there have been many gatherings and parties over the years. We love the private location with the woods opposite, the convenience of being close to amenities but with feeling that we live in the peaceful retreat of the countryside. Tucked away with privacy, but close to everything you might need, it is a beautiful space full of flexibility, possibility and happy memories. We are very sad to leave but the time has come to downsize and move to the coast to be closer to our grandchildren. We are sure whoever chooses this home will love and enjoy it as much as we have.
