Accommodation commences with an entrance porch, protecting the reception hall from which a staircase ascends to the galleried landing over; to one side is the sitting room with woodburning stove and direct garden access.
A separate dining room permits formal entertaining and opens to a conservatory affording views over, and access to, the rear garden. An additional separate snug is cosy for winter evenings.
The breakfast kitchen is generously proportioned with ample informal dining space, re-fitted with a most attractive range of two tone units, granite worktops and a quality appliance package by Bosch/Neff. A useful utility room and cloakroom with WC complete the ground floor.
At first floor level, the sleeping space radiates around the central galleried landing.
