We are very happy with the house, love the front and rear 'courtyard' areas and the way you have landscaped them and the wealth of original features in the building itself, especially the exposed timber, you have done a great restoration job on the place. We also admire your brave choice of bold colours in the decoration, it works well, and your choice of quality fittings and furnishings.

  • This house has been beautifully renovated with panache and comfort in mind

    This house has been beautifully renovated with panache and comfort in mind. The beds are so cosy, you sleep like a baby. In the kitchen you will find everything needed with good quality appliances and homewares. The location is convenient allowing allowing a walk into town and shops nearby to buy supplies. Congratulations to Gareth for a beautifully presented property.
