HISTORY: This Grade 2 Listed 1844 Victorian residence was owned by wealthy families with live-in servants.
In August 2010 the present owners, Vyvyan and Lynn Richards, undertook the massive project of restoring this badly neglected building to its former glory.
Besides replacing most of the ground level flooring with original Victorian pine, introducing adequate sub floor ventilation, painting and decorating, they also restored 3 of the 6 Victorian fireplaces, making use of original tiles, surrounds and metal inserts.
In July 2011 the twelve-month project was completed.
Subsequently, this magnificent four bedroom residence with spacious accommodation for eight guests, was furnished with top quality beds, together with Victorian and other antique furniture.
The secluded, south-facing garden is a veritable sun-trap with patio and pergola, furnished with table and chairs.
The lawned area provides adequate space for ball games and sun-bathing.
