A stunning roof top garden has been designed above the garage, leading perfectly into the remainder of the grounds that have been established with a lawn, ensuring their use for a family is ideal. South facing and afforded extensive views stretching for miles, the exterior of this property is equally measured by the quality of the interior. With an open plan aspect but not losing the homely ambience of the Cottage, it is immediately apparent that a lot of consideration has been given to the design of this beautiful property. With Kingspan insulation to all external walls and ceilings the property also boasts LED lighting throughout.
