Wonderfully traditional in appearance, the Hanover is a solid, self-assured semi-detached family home that has everything you need for the ebb and flow of family living.
Full of light and life from the double width patio doors, the kitchen / dining room will be the hub of your home from breakfast to supper. And while the large lounge has space for everyone, as a separate room, it can be a sanctuary too while the kids play and do homework elsewhere.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is superbly appointed, with an en suite shower room. There’s also a second double bedroom, while a single bedroom and family bathroom completes this well thought out family home.
