Description St Ronans really is a unique property and must be viewed to fully appreciate all it has to offer. The Annex benefits from having its own front door and currently has access from the main house. This flexible accommodation lends itself well to co-living with an elderly relative or grown up child. Alternatively, it could provide an income through holiday lets or air B&B. High ceilings and original features such as wooden picture rails, mixed sympathetically with modern features give this house a very appealing feel.
