What The Owner Says
'The land on which this property was built was sold by a Nurseryman, William Burgess, on 28th August 1878 to a Licensed Victualler John Hacking with the proviso that no Ale or Spirit House was erected on it. Hacking subsequently had two houses erected on the plot he had purchased and so begins the story. We purchased the property in a very run down condition in 1980 and have therefore spent most of our married life living in this fantastic Victorian property bringing the house to the lovely condition it stands in today. We raised our family here but now they have homes of their own we have reluctantly decided the time is right to move on. Our children had a fabulous time growing up here and are also sad we have decided to move but understand the decision. The house is not overlooked front or back, oozes character and will surely give its new owners as much pleasure as we have enjoyed from it over the past 37 years.'
