Vendor Comment

"We bought Squirrel Cottage in 2009 as we loved its period features and village location. We always intended to extend and make it a modern family home whilst retaining its character which we managed to achieve in 2013. We love the modern open plan style in particular the living room with bi-fold doors which we open in the summer to enjoy the outdoor living space as well as the island in the kitchen where we spend many evenings with friends and family."
