The entrance hall leads to the sitting room with vaulted ceiling, open fire and doors to the garden. Steps lead up to the dining area and room plumbed for use as kitchen. Further steps lead down to the 3 bedrooms (1 en suite) and family bathroom. There is also a utility room, cloakroom and cellar.

To the front of the property there is off street parking and access to a single integral garage. To the rear of the property there is a walled garden, which is mainly laid to lawn with a paved patio area.
