Birch Hill is an imposing Victorian residence of much character and presence. This substantial home was transformed by later additions yet retains the character and architectural style of the original parts and now offers a wealth of versatile spacious accommodation.
The arrangement and flow of the accommodation works particularly well for a family with a stunning large triple aspect kitchen/family room with a vaulted ceiling and french doors leading to a private breakfast terrace providing a true 'heart of the home' living space. In addition there is a separate dining room, play room/snug and a excellent sized dual aspect sitting room with attractive open fire. The first floor mirrors the sense of space the ground floor living accommodation offers with five well proportioned bedrooms, a family bathroom and one en-suite to the master bedroom. We thoroughly recommend an internal inspection at your earliest opportunity.
