12 Orchard Road is a handsome terraced cottage, built by the Clark’s family in the late 19th Century. The current owners have taken great care to totally update the accommodation to now provide a home that is ready for a buyer who just wants to move straight in with a suitcase. Re-wiring, re-plumbing, re-plastering and a range of further cosmetic improvements are on the list of the thoughtful alterations 12 Orchard Road has received.
