Teresa Brewer, Director at Finlay Brewer, comments, “This is a really exceptional opportunity to purchase a truly unique home. The interiors are just incredible, and the care that has been taken in the refurbishment of the house would make it a joy to live in.

“The background of the home only adds to its atmosphere of stylish elegance and spacious proportions. A property of this size and character can be hard to come by in this area, and I strongly recommend viewing early to appreciate the grandeur and potential of the space.”
