One staircase leads directly to the master bedroom suite with a bay window to the front elevation and an en suite shower room divides bedroom 1 and bedroom 2, with bedroom 2 enjoying a mezzanine level overlooking the drawing room. There are two/three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Old Ryes is approached over a long gravel drive shared with two other properties, all discreetly situated away from one another.
