Bridgfords are pleased to be able to offer this substantial former gentleman's residence to the open market. With an impressive square footage of accommodation including up to seven double bedrooms, three bathrooms and five reception rooms! However, the piece de resistance surely has to be the grand entrance hall with wood panelled interior and sweeping staircase - presenting the perfect area to greet guests. The property is set back from the road, tucked behind pillared entrance gates with a sweeping driveway leading up to an ample parking area, with a manicured lawn to the front. A personal inspection is highly recommended to appreciate the history associated with this elegant family home.
