The wealth of character features and flourishes have been beautifully preserved and sit well alongside any modernisation. The property enjoys well-proportioned flexible accommodation and there is ample room for further enhancement.
The accommodation includes an entrance porch leading into an enchanted sitting room then a dining room which has double doors leading into the courtyard. There is a beautiful large open plan kitchen/dining room with a doorway to the laundry room and family room which also opens out to the courtyard.
