Paths lead to the front porch and the gardens which are positioned on both sides of the house. You enter the house through a entrance door at the front which is sheltered from the weather by a handy porch. From a well proportioned reception hall stairs ascend to the first floor and doors lead to either side into the living room and study and a further door leads to the kitchen/breakfast room located at the rear of the house. The living room is a vast l-shaped space with multiple windows to the side, front and rear elevations. A door leads to the rear giving access to the garden and a further door interconnects to the kitchen/breakfast room. The kitchen is old fashioned but well fitted with plenty of storage cupboards and ample worktop space for food preparation.

Moving back through the reception hall you notice a handy WC and the study which has space for a desk and window overlooking the cul-de-sac at the front.

Bedroom two is also a double size room with airing/storage cupboard and the third bedroom is a small double. The family bathroom has a coloured suite with WC and wash hand basin.
