Off the reception hall sits a well-proportioned kitchen which incorporates a range of solid oak base and wall units with oak worktops and is fitted with a Belfast sink and plate rack unit above, a two oven Aga with stove top and a wall mounted larder unit. Leading on from the kitchen there is a ground floor W.C and a utility room providing space and plumbing for additional appliances, further unit storage and a cloaks cupboard. Side access is granted from the utility out to the south facing courtyard.

An inner lobby provides entry to the two ground floor reception rooms, one of which being an attractive dual aspect drawing room featuring a bay window to the rear and an ornate oak fire surround and mantle. The sitting room also benefits from a dual aspect view over the garden and displays a feature oak panelled wall with inset stone built fireplace and glazed French doors out.

An open staircase leads to the first floor landing off which is a generous dual aspect double bedroom, a second bedroom and a well-appointed three piece bathroom suite. The annexe has full residential planning permission for use as a separate dwelling but equally could be incorporated into the main house subject to planning consent.
