A rather grand substantial family home, although in close proximity to local shopping amenities, you feel at home within the walls of this Victorian Villa. This home offers flexible accommodation with ample space for the large family or those who need plenty of space for entertaining and putting up guests. ‘White Lodge’ has been updated and redecorated within the last two years and is currently arranged as a small homely guest house, however we are selling this as a private home.
