Both these rooms have engineered oak flooring as does the family room with feature fireplace and Morso Squirrel stove.

The lounge is the principle reception room and is bathed in natural light from both windows and skylights creating a wonderful sociable space. This beautiful room includes a feature multi fuel burner and benefits from limestone flooring with under floor heating. This continues into the kitchen, the utility room and the breakfast room which overlooks the garden.
