A tasteful renovation combining the new with many of the original features which remain in much of the property, maintaining that period feel, including feature fireplaces in many of the principal rooms, high ceilings, plaster cornice, traditional staircase, central ceiling rose and the exposed floorboards (some painted). 8 Abercromby Road offers flexibility within the living space, with the potential to annexe the Lower ground floor to provide: Kitchen/Living/Shower Room/Bedroom for extended family or to provide a source of income. The property further benefits from an outbuilding fitted with stove, which currently provides a relaxing space to unwind, this could be utilised as a home office/hobby room. Sitting alongside is a Shepherds Hut which again provides a unique space to unwind or additional separate accommodation space for family and friends.
