With its origins in the 17th Century, No 2 St Olaves is granite built beneath a newly rethatched and a part tile roof. Over the ensuing years the house has been extended and remodelled and now offers very comfortable centrally heated accommodation with a wealth of period features and enormous character. The accommodation is spacious without being over large and it has predominantly south facing windows for excellent natural light. The garden is charming and is also south facing with a paved and gravelled terrace, a wisteria cloaked pergola and many shaped shrubs and perennial plants. There is parking for three vehicles, a former garage/shed, a greenhouse and extensive raised planters for fruit and vegetables. Fowlers very strongly recommend viewing this lovely home.
