General Remarks

Bowen Son and Watson with Kent Jones are delighted with instructions to offer The Breiddens in Babbinswood near Whittington for sale by private treaty. The property offers well proportioned living space which would suit both family purchasers and those looking for a lifestyle change. The large rear gardens extend away to border agricultural fields and provide for a most peaceful setting. The property also includes a useful solar array which reduces the running costs substantially. The central heating is a modern oil fired system which is supplemented by a duel fuel burner in the living room and electric under floor heating in the Conservatory.
