The layout is elegant, light and airy and very flexible, making the most of its lovely outlook. A solid oak door opens into a spacious reception/dining hall with quality hardwood floor. The drawing room is a most elegant room with the focal point being the open fireplace and double French doors opening into the garden.?Off the reception hall is a study with a glazed door to a small courtyard and also a cloakroom.

Another attractive feature are the plantation shutters fitted to many of the windows. The principal bedroom is also a stunning room with French doors opening onto a large covered veranda overlooking the garden.
