Lower Hillsborough was refurbished just four years ago and offers both complementary and contemporary styling as well as spacious, bright accommodation throughout. There are tall ceilings and big sash windows, bi-fold doors at the rear and lots of lovely natural light. During the refurbishment the house was re-roofed and re-plumbed, rewired and re-plastered and gas fired central heating was installed. The ground floor living areas are generously proportioned and all the bedrooms are double size with an ensuite accompanying shower room to the master bedroom and a separate family bathroom. At the rear is a south west facing garden and a large garage which has a new planning permission to build a new garage in its place. Fowlers strongly recommend viewing to appreciate this lovely home.
