What the owner says

“We’ve absolutely loved the space and versatility that we have in this house, especially in such a great location in the heart of Lilliput. Being able to walk to Evening Hill in 10 minutes or to the beach at Shore Road in 25 minutes is wonderful. The annexe is a great hidden extra that could be used for a family member, office space, a second income, or just more room to spread out – we’ve used it for all these things! The garden is also fantastic; a really secluded and quiet place for the children to play or for outdoor entertaining. We’re really disappointed that we have to move on as we know what an amazing home we’re leaving behind.”
