The accommodation is arranged over two floors with the ground floor comprising an entrance hall leading directly to the lounge and dining room. Both these rooms have retained the original beams with the lounge having a recessed brick fireplace with wood burning stove. In the corner of the lounge is an independent staircase which leads to bedroom four and from the lounge access is gained to the master bedroom which has a spiral staircase rising to the ensuite bathroom at first floor level. The lobby to the rear has a staircase leading to the first floor and also provides access to the ground floor
