The property was built in 1997 by the well respected C G Fry & Sons and was the original show home. The current owners bought the property in 1998. The drive is owned by 7 Tansee Hill with two neighbours having a right of way to access their garage. The cost of repair of the drive is therefore shared. A new boiler and new bunded oil tank were installed in 2018. The property benefits from modern uPVC double glazing throughout.
