    Description
    The property was built in 1926 and was the last house designed by the talented architect, Claude Burlingham, in his characteristic and distinctive Arts and Crafts style. The house was named "Hatchgate" in approximately 1953 by the then owner. The property was purchased by our clients in 1999 and is offered to the market for the first time since then with the benefit of no-onward chain. This lovely character family house provides the incoming purchaser an excellent opportunity to update and modernise for modern family living. There is also considerable scope for enlargement, if required, subject to the usual planning consents.
