Arriving at the portico-covered entrance, rich with design details of a bygone age that celebrates quality craftsmanship, you cannot fail to be captivated by The Balmoral. A commanding 4 bedroom property of significant proportions, it also manages to retain a homely ambience thanks to the light and spaciousness found once inside.
Large, open plan rooms make spending time together a pleasure. The kitchen encompasses a dining area and lounge to encourage sociability, while a separate lounge/study room is the perfect peaceful haven within the home. 4 vast bedrooms provide ample living space for the entire family, as well as any guests you will be proud to have stay.
With contemporary interiors and appliances chosen with family life in mind, The Balmoral is an idyllic sanctuary from busy modern life.
