“I love it all,” says the owner. “It’s all so unique, and every room has something that’s 200 years old.” You can see this in charming details, such as the tower feature to the back of the house, oval windows and cast-iron fireplaces. An exceptionally sympathetic extension to the rear gives you a very spacious kitchen, with range, island unit, sitting and breakfast areas. There’s also a diningroom and TV room separate to this.
