Entrance is via the vestibule which has a cloak room with a bi-fold door and plenty of storage for outdoor clothing and shoes. The hallway is most impressive and leads to a library area, WC and stairway. Downstairs, there is a spacious double bedroom with a large en-suite bathroom, comprising two wash hand basins, WC, bidet, mirrored bath and heated towel rail.

The formal drawing room attracts a great deal of natural light through five large windows, whilst providing great views over the local countryside and beyond. Features include an impressive feature fireplace of Clashach sandstone and hearth; raised skirtings and contemporary designer décor.

For formal occasions and entertaining the large dining room is well-proportioned and has two sandstone pillars and doors leading to the terrace and gardens. The kitchen has a comprehensive range of bespoke wall and base storage units with Corian worktops, integrated appliances, Amtico flooring and a breakfast area. The rear hall and rear vestibule provides considerable additional storage and hanging space for outdoor clothes. The utility room also has ample cupboards and space for white goods.

An integral double garage is accessed via the rear hallway and has boarded storage above accessed by a Ramsay ladder. There is also further storage, a gardener’s toilet and second boiler room and boot room.
