As you enter the property you are greeted with a good-sized entrance porch which has plenty of space for coats and boots and a door giving access to the entrance hall. The entrance hall is a nice bright open space with an impressive staircase leading to the first floor as well as doors to the kitchen and reception rooms.

Moving into the living/dining room you have ample space for both living furniture and a good sized dining table. This space is particularly impressive and would suit the needs of most families. There is also a feature double glazed bay window to the front keeping the room nice and bright. To the rear elevation you have sliding patio doors to the conservatory which again is a good size and a well used space by the present owners, it has French doors to the garden as well as pleasant views from the rear windows. Back through the entrance hall you gain access to the kitchen which offers plenty of working space and has pleasant views over the rear garden. Through the kitchen you gain access to the side porch which again is a handy area for storing dirty shoes etc after enjoying the garden! You have two large storage cupboards, one which houses the washing machine and the second which is currently used to store the refrigerator.
