The ground floor accommodation is completed with practicalities including a guest cloakroom and utility room as well as a good sized home office which has the benefit of an independent and separate access, kitchenette and cloakroom facilities, and a staircase rising to an additional office / storage space. This area of the house would ideally suit those looking to work from home or could quite easily be integrated to provide additional reception and bedroom accommodation to the main house.
