There is a formal dining room, library, home office/Study and a well-equipped dining kitchen which comes with a comprehensive selection of wall and base storage units, integrated appliances, built in wine rack and breakfast bar. The utility/boot room is located off the kitchen and provides additional storage and space for white goods. Large sliding glass doors from the kitchen lead to a magnificent sun/pool room. The use of glass and 15 windows provide a great deal of natural sunlight and very much bring the outside inside. There is a small pool with cover and two person sauna. The ground floor accommodation flows particularly well with bi-folding doors opening up from the dining room into the lounge, perfect for family get-togethers and entertaining.

For added convenience, a doorway has been created from the library which gives access to an integral garage. This leads to the boiler room and a further garage, workshop/ tool shed.

The staircase from the hallway leads upstairs to a magnificent open galleried landing.
