Reception Hall / Dining Room 14’5’’ x 14’5’’ (4.39m x 4.39m)
This space is reminiscent of a ‘living hall’ found in country manor houses with its real open fire, cosy corner, high ceiling, original parquet flooring and oak panelled enclosed turned stairwell leading up to split level landing and galleried first floor.
Currently used as a dining room with large oak 8-seater table, this room could easily be returned to use as a snug with a couple of high-back chairs next to the fire.

Lounge 19’6’’ x 13’10’’ (6.01m x 4.22m)
Very generous double aspect lounge with a large bay window, coal effect gas fire in a decorative fireplace and original parquet flooring.

Games Room 16’0’’ x 15’4’’ (4.88m x 4.67m)
Originally the dining room because of the serving hatch through to the kitchen, this room is currently used as a games room with a slate bed pool table & music system. Double aspect views to garden at side from bay window and access to garden terrace via fully opening triple panel bi-fold doors. Features a substantial fireplace with coal-effect gas fire.

Breakfast Room (Kitchen) 14’5’’ x 10’9’’ (4.39m x 3.28m)
Main Kitchen 21’2’’ x 8’10’’ (6.45m x 2.69m)
The spacious open plan triple aspect kitchen & breakfast room really is the heart of the house, and also serves as the ‘everyday’ entrance to the house through what is still labelled as the ‘Tradesman’s entrance’ on the original servant bells.
The kitchen features a large central island with overhead lighting & concealed fridge, gas fired two-oven Aga, electric oven & hob, cooker hood extractor fan, Belfast sink, USB phone charging points and LED mood lighting throughout.
The windows are all double glazed and in addition to the tradesman’s entrance, there is also a door to access the rear garden & terrace. Both these doors have been upgraded to modern composite doors to increase security and thermal efficiency over the original timber doors.

Utility Room 8’10’’ x 7’5’’ (2.69m x 2.26m)
Off the kitchen to the rear of the property is a very useful utility room which currently houses the gas fired central heating boiler, fridge-freezer unit, washing machine & tumble drier. There is also an extra door out to the garden but this was not used so has been temporarily blocked off with Kingspan insulation board. This could easily be brought back into use again if desired.

Cloakroom WC 9’10’’ x 5’6’’ (3m x 1.68m)
The original pantry of the house has been converted into a downstairs WC and cloakroom, and still features the same original black and white chequer pattern tile floor as found in the front porch. Also in here is the alarm control box and access to a large under stairs storage area.

Landing 14’6’’ x 11’1’’ (4.42m x 3.38m)

Loft area – Potential for conversion (Approx 41sqm)
The loft space is cavernous and would be ideal for conversion into further habitable rooms if required. The layout of the existing staircase & landing means this could be extended to carry on upwards to the loft without having to sacrifice any of the existing rooms.
Outline plans have been done showing two configurations:
1. Master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with WC & open plan office/landing area
2. Two double bedrooms, shower room with WC & open plan office/landing area

Detached Tandem Garage 10'6'' x 25'7'' (3.2m x 7.8m)

To the rear of the garage is a large covered area, useful for further dry storage of garden equipment or bikes, etc.

Garden
The grounds are approx 1/3 acre with a large entrance driveway that extends around the front of the property and along the side to the rear garage. Parking for 6+ vehicles is easily possible.
A raised terrace area meets the property at the rear, accessed from the kitchen rear door or the games room bi-fold doors, and this then extends around the side of the garage to the raised undercover area behind.
