The Property Originally constructed in 1979 as a commercial workshop, the building was later converted to residential use in 1987 by a very highly regarded local builder who has incorporated superb unique features into the property creating a truly one of a kind opportunity. In 2003 the maisonette above the garage was constructed with the further timber-framed snooker room, also a later addition. The property has brick-faced cavity walls with a pitched dormer roof construction covered in clay pantiles. Under closer inspection various intricate details in the building's construction can be found when viewed in person, further enhancing the individual nature of this property. The property is heated by mains gas with a Viessmann central heating boiler and all windows are uPVC double-glazed with powder coated frames in cream.
