Beautifully restored and refurbished by the current owner, the property retains its charming character features throughout, with the addition of modern elements as well, such as a stunning new dine in kitchen, with views through the glass doors over the walled garden.The property is gated and the grounds walled, so despite being within a few minutes walking distance to the center of Chawton, it is extremely private.
