  • Description

    Description

    We are an older couple who have been involved in farming life but now live in the pretty township of Cambridge which is known for Horses and Rowing plus plenty of cafés. Our old villa requires on going love and attention and we need a hand with the high and low areas in the house and garden. In the few few months we will be listing our house for sale so if you have painting and carpentry skills they would be most appreciated.
