A master bedroom suite occupies the lower ground floor and includes a well proportioned double aspect bedroom and private en-suite bathroom, just reappointed, most tastefully fitted with a white suite and quality ceramic tiled. To the first floor, a part galleried landing leads to two bedrooms and a family shower room, also recently reappointed, again to a high standard with quality fittings.
