Owners Comments

‘'Turning into the driveway in wintertime, with the log burner fired up glowing through the front window, is when I start to relax after a hectic day. As spring arrives, all you can hear is birdsong amongst the peace and tranquility.''

‘'The light throughout the house is amazing, the sun streams in everywhere through the big windows and is so uplifting.''
