MCAfee Properties are pleased to offer for sale this luxurious country residence: it’s No 20 and you should easily be able to think of at least 20 reasons to be excited about this superb house – especially if you are looking for something that extra bit special!

The plot extends to circa 0.8 acres with landscaping throughout and mature hedge boundaries with a detached garage, stores and a great summer house.

Externally it’s already impressive and makes an impact when you approach the same – but be prepared to be wowed when you see the inside!
