One for the pages of 'Homes & Gardens': an absolutely exquisite Grade II Listed town house, late 18th Century, refreshingly authentic yet sympathetically and most tastefully updated, providing light, spacious, versatile and extremely elegant 5 bedroom accommodation, full of character and quality features, with a walled, sunny and highly attractive rear garden.
