There is an oil fired radiator and partial underfloor central heating system. A particular feature of the property is the superb library annexe (former stables) which now includes study, store and library and a number of original features including a manger. Outside there is a delightful landscaped walled and fenced mature garden which includes herbaceous and flower borders, lawn, courtyard area, trees including a productive eating apple tree. The property in all extends to about 0.28 acres.
