In addition to living rooms, the house boasts a good sized home office/study which is an ideal room for those now needing space to work from home. The bedroom arrangement is somewhat versatile as one of the bedrooms has a large storage area off it and is currently used by the owners as a bedroom. There are two other bedrooms on the first floor and a good sized family bathroom. A secondary staircase rise to a loft room which is also currently used as a bedroom, but does have other uses, if required.

The easterly facing garden is a gardener's delight and has been carefully planted out to create a stunning blooming garden throughout the key seasons. There is a pretty stone sun terrace to the rear and a stable style door that leads back into the kitchen. There is a garage with light and power and this could be converted into further accommodation, if required and subject to the usual planning consents.
