There is a staircase to one end leading up to the sitting room, a cosy first floor retreat with windows overlooking the garden. The contemporary kitchen/breakfast room has beautiful limestone flooring, a traditional Aga and stylish, bespoke cupboards. Beyond the kitchen is the rear hallway with two bedrooms (one en-suite) and a study, leading down to the double garage at the end.
