The large dual aspect L-shaped kitchen/dining room features exposed beams, a white modern kitchen with granite worktop and built in appliances and a glazed door onto the paved terrace. Large double glazed windows flood the room with natural light. Opposite the kitchen is the 21' triple aspect sitting room. Wide French doors open onto the side lawn, and a stone fireplace creates a welcoming feature. Opposite the front door is a second reception room currently used as a snug/playroom, and a door leads to the ground floor shower room with a laundry cupboard with plumbing for washing machine.
Upstairs the galleried landing with exposed beams leads to two wings. The principal bedroom has views over the terrace, built-in wardrobes and enjoys the benefit of an en-suite bathroom.

At the other wing, three further good sized bedrooms can be found, which share a large, recently refitted fully tiled modern bathroom with separate walk-in shower and velux windows. A real feature of this room are the four oval stained glass windows.
The office/studio is a bright and airy space with vaulted ceilings and windows on three sides. It has been divided into two useful offices with a generous store cupboard between. It has a separate heating system from the main house and makes an ideal work-from-home opportunity.
