The farmhouse style kitchen provides a central preparation island, stylish wood fronted wall and base units, flagstone tiled flooring, granite work surfaces, space for range master cooking set into exposed brick fireplace, wood ceiling beams and an extra sized stripped wood stable door leading out on to the driveway. A good sized utility room and W/C cloakroom complete the layout on the ground floor along with plenty of under stairs storage space.

The first floor landing provides wonderful natural light and gives way for private living arrangements and is currently used as a library. The spacious landing gives access to bedroom two, three and the family bathroom. Bedroom two – a good size double room - which is located at the rear of the property benefits from outstanding views from the elevated dual aspect position. Bedroom three is also of double in size and provides immediate access to the family bathroom which consists of a three piece suite in white with shower over bath, vanity style wash hand basin and low level wc with heated towel rail.
