Our vendor says... We have had 17 wonderful family years here in this peaceful yet well-situated home, but now the kids have flown it's time for us to do the same. Look after it and enjoy it just as we have.
We have noticed... Such a wonderful family home, incredibly spacious, versatile and set in the most amazing semi-rural position between Wrington and Congresbury. If you are looking for a house for a large family or perhaps to co-habit with dependent relatives this could be the house for you!
