There is a cloaks/utility cupboard immediately to the left and then the next door leads into the lounge.

Both the Lounge and the kitchen enjoy an outlook over the lovely garden. The bedrooms are arranged at one end of the property and all are well proportioned, the master being spacious and having a large wardrobe cupboard and an en-suite shower room. The family bathroom is fitted with a stylish suite including a freestanding roll top bath, hand basin and a wc with a high level cistern with highly polished pipework which enhances the overall appearance.
