Set within a walled garden this property offers a private and secluded home in a desirable area. Whilst the date of construction is not known we understand the property was originally a coach house for the nearby villa. The current owners have modernised and improved the property during their term of ownership and today the property is well presented throughout. Accommodation consists of two double bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor, whilst the ground floor has a kitchen/dining room, sitting room, and conservatory that wraps around two sides of the property to encompass the entrance porch. There is plenty of parking and the attractive walled garden has been landscaped for ease of maintenance, with a garden studio that has a variety of uses.ACCOMMODATION

The sitting room is a lovely bright room that has glazed double doors leading to the conservatory, there is a chimney breast to one corner currently housing an electric stove style fire, a door leads to the entrance hall. The conservatory is positioned to get the best of the sun and creates a further reception room with a variety of uses, two sliding windows open the room to the garden on warmer days.
