"My late husband bought the property in 1986 before we were married. He worked at the college so the location was perfect. Subsequently, we lived there enjoying the view for some time before we moved to London. We couldn't part with the stunning views so kept it as a second property with a dream of one day retiring there. We never tired of the outlook, watching the sunsets and rises. I am sad to say goodbye as it holds many happy memories. I am sure anyone will love living here like we did."
