The en suite master bedroom is on the ground floor with 2 further bedrooms to the first floor accessed off a useful landing/study area. There are established gardens along with ample parking facilities plus a separate garage with loft space over.

A double glazed doorway leads through to the entrance lobby and in turn to a hallway with Karndean wood effect flooring throughout, coat hanging facilities and an airing cupboard housing the Vaillant gas fired central heating boiler.

The living room is a delightful room with full width sliding patio doors looking out to the gardens, wood effect Karndean flooring throughout with decorative border, coving to ceiling and point for gas fire.

A doorway from the dining room leads through to a conservatory with views out over the garden along with sliding patio doors and 2 further French doors leading out.
