The property has been substantially and stylishly refurbished in recent years in contemporary style. The accommodation is usefully flexible via a split level layout comprising five/four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two/three living rooms, splendid kitchen and cloakroom. The lower ground floor enjoys it\'s own front door and offers potential for granny flat. The gardens have been most attractively landscaped and designed for ease of maintenance.

The property is within a short stroll of the Knap Gardens and lake, pebble beach, Watch Tower Bay, Romilly Park, coffee shops and cafs.
