The garden has been stylishly transformed with planting and trellis to offer an attractive space in which to entertain and for alfresco dining.

The sitting room (14'1" x 11'10"), a light and bright room which, as typical of a house from this era, benefits from a delightful south facing walk-in bay window that overlooks the side garden and an open fireplace with brick surrounds and tiled hearth being the focal point of the room (not tested). The kitchen (12'2" x 10'2") is fitted with a range of light wood effect base and wall units, matching wine rack and complimented by dark granite effect work surfaces, tiled splash back and light tiled flooring.
