Accommodation is larger than average and includes five first floor bedrooms, with the main bathroom and en-suite, whilst on the ground floor the house boasts particularly spacious living space, including a big reception hallway, large through lounge, additional separate reception or dining room, together with a big eat-in kitchen/breakfast room.
