A porticoed doorway leads into a spacious reception hall with wooden floor. The warm, welcoming family farmhouse style kitchen with an AGA set in an inglenook surround is generously proportioned creating an ideal space for spending time with the family or entertaining. Accessed from this room are three conservatory/boot rooms/utility rooms all with tiled floors, being very practical for the country lifestyle and letting in lots of light to the kitchen. The well proportioned dual aspect drawing room has folding doors leading out to the front terrace and wonderful views over the front garden and pond. There is an open fire set in a stone surround on a stone hearth. The wooden floor continues into the conservatory which area was part of the original needle mill which once stood on the site. The large dining room has arched windows to the front aspect providing views over the garden and which views are also afforded from the dual aspect snug, which benefits from large arched windows and double doors to outside. Completing an impressive array of ground floor accommodation are a cloakroom and study.

The en-suite bathroom has a slate floor and large bath and basin with a WC in a separate cloakroom. Across the landing are two walk-in wardrobes. Bedroom Two was originally two double bedrooms which have been combined to create one very generous bedroom but could be restored to two rooms. Dual aspect windows provide views over the gardens to both aspects and this room also features wonderful exposed timbers. The en suite shower room has a ceramic tiled floor, a large cubicle with rainwater shower and a basin set on a contemporary vanity unit. The third bedroom is a well-proportioned double with views over the front garden and pool. Finally to this floor the family bathroom has a slate floor, freestanding roll top bath and shower cubicle.
