About the property
Offering much more than meets the eye, 4 The Square is a sizeable townhouse with accommodation extending over three floors. Having been modernised and upgraded by the present owners, the accommodation features a number of lovely traditional features which blend successfully with some of the modern fixtures and fittings which include a shaker style dining kitchen, contemporary bathroom and partial under floor heating. Due to the nature of the property, all rooms are of generous proportions and cater perfectly for modern family living with the option for further extension if desired into the large attic space. Equally as surprising is the detached studio which lies to the foot of the garden and benefits from its own vehicle access via the lane to the rear. This is a tremendous space with endless opportunities; having been used most recently as a dedicated work environment, office and gym area with the added benefit of attic storage.
