The kitchen and dining room are open plan and this versatile area has double sliding doors that open out onto the beautiful garden, explains Martin so the house is wonderful for entertaining purposes. It is
a very sociable house and over the years I have
had many parties here. It is particularly good for

From moving into the house 22 years ago, a lot of improvements have been made, explains Martin. An extension was added at the side of the house; it was originally a
1950s style property and has now been extensively modernised.
Re-decoration in all of the rooms has also been covered
completely, so that everything is up to date and immaculately
kept, adds Martin.

The location of the property was one of the main aspects that first drew me to the house, says Martin. Another huge benefit was its fantastic size and the potential it had for development. I knew as soon as I saw it that it
would be perfect for extending.

I did a lot of work on the garden as well as I adore gardening. It is a large space and I made sure it was beautifully landscaped. The garden has a fish pond, water feature and a greenhouse. The garden is one of my favourite places in the summer
months as it is so peaceful.
