There are few who think their homes are big enough, especially in those vital years when the home is the resting place and nest of the young.

This is unlikely to be a problem for future owners of this hidden Marlinstown gem, as not only is it spacious, it has the luxury of coming with five bedrooms – and it sits on a very generous site that measures up to ‘ at 0.87 acres, with beautifully manicured lawns to the front and rear, plus ample on-site parking.

The living room is actually open plan with the dining room – a lovely space which, via the patio doors, offers beautiful views of the garden.
