The accommodation comprises of an entrance hall with a bespoke oak front door, cloakroom, Lemona kitchen with a Belfast sink, oak work tops and integrated appliances, which opens onto the stunning living/dining room with bi-fold doors designed to maximise the downland views, vaulted ceiling and a hand built multi fuel cast iron enamelled stove which was imported from the renowned French foundry of Godin near Paris. The master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, bespoke hanging wardrobes and an en-suite shower room, bedroom two has a built in wardrobe and is situated next to the modern family bathroom.
