The Aga kitchen is located in the heart of the house with a superb bay window with full height glazed doors opening out to the raised terrace and gardens beyond. Along the hallway is the sitting room with a wood burner and views over the gardens and the dining room with further features.
The first floor is reached by an impressive staircase which leads onto a large landing. There are five double bedrooms and two bathrooms and a second floor with two further bedrooms and bathroom.
