This stunning Grade ll Listed Regency mid-terrace cottage is now available for sale for the first time in 66 years having just completed a total renovation and refurbishment programme. The current owner has undergone a comprehensive and detailed remodelling from its original state, carefully and sensitively retaining all its charm and character, detailing many original features and creating an exceptionally desirable residence.
The property has been beautifully finished inside and out using high quality materials and craftmanship, decorated with subtle soft tones from the Farrow and Ball range, beautifully emphasising its charm and details from the Regency era.
The house is surprisingly light and airy throughout, enjoying a south westerly aspect from all the windows with far reaching views towards the Quantock Hills.
