The seller's story;
“It was love at first sight when we first walked into this house. The hall, the gorgeous picture window in the living room, the tall ceilings and welcoming atmosphere - this house immediately felt like home to our family. We had a new kitchen built, creating a wonderful, spacious kitchen/ lounge combined with a large pantry. I run my company from home and the office has a separate entrance so that my clients don't have to pass through the house.
Our house has always been a hub for our children's friends. The hockey and soccer field, but also the fabulous porched terrace, the hang out, have magnetic appeal for the youngsters. It proved ideal for birthday and graduation parties. We have made many memories, have celebrated major life events here. Memories that we will continue to cherish as we move forward. This is a happy and welcoming home, everyone who comes here always says that it has such a warm atmosphere.”
