Summary

A substantial 5 bedroom Edwardian residence in highly sought after area affording spacious living and bedroom accommodation stretching over three storeys. The high ceilings bring an elegance and scale typically found in properties built around this period and early internal viewings are recommended. While in well maintained condition there is still plenty of scope for new buyers to sympathetically refurbish and modernise the property to their own standard of specification.
