A large archway and a further door leads to the sitting room. The sitting room affords a wealth of character, with bay window to front aspect, secondary glazed window to the rear aspect, large oak ceiling beams and a feature brick fireplace with wooden mantel. The room has been designed to accommodate a formal dining table to one end and a comfortable seating area to the other and is versatile in its use. The kitchen breakfast room is fitted with a range of painted oak base, wall and open display units complimented by hardwood work surfaces and butlers sink. Integrated oven, gas hob and extractor hood and with plumbing for washing machine. Dual aspect windows make this a light and bright room with one window enjoying views across the rear garden.

To complete the ground floor accommodation is a cloakroom fitted with low level wc and wash-hand basin; the room incorporates a useful storage cupboard.

The first floor landing provides a delightful space for relaxing, reading, studying etc. and the front window affords charming views along this interesting street scene. A wonderful Tudor brick arched fireplace is a fine feature of the property and is situated to one side of the landing. There are three generous bedrooms on the first floor that offer a mixture of exposed beams, wooden floor boards and wardrobe space. All of the bedrooms benefit from excellent head height and are served by a modern family bathroom. The bathroom is fitted with a panelled bath with shower over, vanity wash hand basin and low level wc. Heated towel rail. A wooden staircase leads to the attic room which benefits from a velux roof light.

The rear garden has previously been a fine attribute of the property and is of a surprisingly good size for such a centrally located home. The garden is enclosed by attractive walls and a paved terrace abuts the property and the useful brick outhouses. A path meanders up the garden with lawned areas and flower beds to both sides, interspersed with mature plantings. There is a greenhouse, shed and fishpond to the rear of the garden.
