One of the sitting rooms has a wood burner, creating a cosy atmosphere, and a spacious dining area with an oak floor and open studwork. A split-level oak staircase takes you to the upstairs secondary sitting room, offering the potential to be used for a variety of different uses. Beyond is an additional games room or bedroom five.
