SELLERS INSIGHT From our first moments in the house it was the reception hall that stood out compared to other properties. It is spacious enough to greet people and avoids ‘chasing them out’ when it comes to leaving. For us, our favourite room is the garden! We have seating areas that follow the sun around all day, plus there is dappled shade from the tree.
We will also miss our galleried landing which is always sunny at the heart of the home.
We will be sad to leave, but we have a property to move into and therefore we have no chain.
