SELLERS INSIGHT: "This has been our family home for many years and we have loved living so close to everything. There are some lovely places to eat and drink within walking distance and of course the moors are easily accessible too. This home looks lovely at Christmas time, with the fireplaces decorated and high ceilings to fit a large tree. The period features were something we noticed when we first viewed it and loved the character it gave to the house. The garden is a bit of a gem too as it is unusual to have a good sized garden in the middle of a town. We have decided to down size, but we will miss the space this home has provided over the years."
