About this property

The house was built over a period of five years starting in the Victorian period and finishing in 1901. It is constructed of brick and rendered elevations with multi pane sash windows under a tile roof. The vendors have carried out extensive works during their 20 years at the property including a new kitchen, utility room and several new bathrooms.
